"Successful Scientific Writing is a must-read for all scientists. It will be especially valuable for the first-time author of a scientific paper. It is indeed 'a step-by-step guide' - a comprehensive, straightforward walk through the writing process. The book's greatest strength is its distillation of information that could only have come from the practical experience of its authors. It is packed with advice on every aspect of writing the scientific paper. The section on improving 'anyone's scientific writing skills' alone is well worth the price. As a teacher of scientific writing I have used the previous editions of this book for years, and look forward to using the fourth edition as well."

..". as it walks the reader through the steps necessary to produce strong writing, [this book] includes lots of information about online writing, ethics and (perhaps most timely of all), plagiarism. Absolutely essential for everyone who writes about science or medicine."
