Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Psychology APA Review of Books of Books
"Writing the NIH Grant Proposal is a good, well-written book- it is practical and unpretentious. Throughout his step-by-step guide, Gerin provides realistic words of encouragement and strategies for success. "— Paul J. Silvia
Sharon Thompson
"[This book is] strongly recommended for researchers, especially junior researchers. Most universities have proposal-writing training sessions for junior faculty. This would be a nice supplement to such training sessions. I also think this would be a good text or supplement for a doctoral-level grant writing course…a tremendous resource for most researchers or aspiring researchers. "
Robert Strack
"The profession will benefit from an NIH grant writing text that steps the reader through the process with relevant examples."
Juliana van Olphen
"Writing an NIH grant is extremely daunting, particularly for new investigators and junior faculty. New investigators and junior faculty face many challenges in applying for federal grants, and Gerin's book could certainly help a junior investigator navigate the complicated process…[and] will help demystify and simplify the application process for many researchers….Gerin succeeds in demystifying NIH grantmaking and has provided useful strategies to assist in writing an NIH grant. "
Gale A. Spencer
"An excellent idea…This book clearly identifies how to prepare, submit and manage a federal grant…The approach with examples of forms and descriptions of the process should be very helpful to grant writers new to the process. I think it is needed, particularly for junior researchers and with pre- and post-doctoral students….The author covers the topic well and gives excellent suggestions and examples. "
Beverly L. Roberts
"A book like this is needed… [and] will benefit new researchers applying for NIH funding…Dr. Gerin does a superb job in distilling the copious information contained in a multitude of complex websites and in presenting the information in an engaging and clear manner. "
Tami Benham-Deal
"There is a real need for this type of handbook…I particularly like the inclusion of 'actual' examples. This provides the reader with an application of the text that is highly needed and valuable…. especially given the increasing pressures on academic institutions and their faculty and graduate students to bring in external funding, including the prized NIH funding. "
