    Reviews & endorsements

    "Communicating in Science is worth its weight in gold. A short, straightforwardly written book, it is chock-full of excellent advice for preparing scientific papers and talks...This book should be in the hands of every scientist." Margaret Reilly, AWIS Magazine

    "Overall, this book is most useful for individuals who do not have experience in preparing manuscripts, posters, or presentations...However, even experienced authors or presenters may benefit from the sections discussing writing style, grammar and the preparation of figures or visual aids." Vickie Hannig, Journal of Genetic Counseling
