The ability to communicate in print and person is essential to the life of a successful scientist. But since writing is often secondary in scientific education and teaching, there remains a significant need for guides that teach scientists how best to convey their research to general and professional audiences. The Craft of Scientific Communication will teach science students and scientists alike how to improve the clarity, cogency, and communicative power of their words and images.In this remarkable guide, Joseph E. Harmon and Alan G. Gross have combined their many years of experience in the art of science writing to analyse published examples of how the best scientists communicate. Organized topically with information on the structural elements and the style of scientific communications, each chapter draws on models of past successes and failures to show students and practitioners how best to negotiate the world of print, online publication, and oral presentation.?It would be impossible to constrain my appreciation for this book, which will find eager reception wherever the need for teaching scientific writing is being addressed. The Craft of Scientific Communication continues in the scholarly tradition of the authors and promises to add a refreshing wealth of pragmatic advice and illustration to any bookshelf dedicated to effective contemporary scientific writing.?Patrick Logan, University of Rhode Island
