The advice is clearly explained and illustrated throughout, with abundant real examples of good and bad practice. Readers are also invited to select papers from the primary literature and their own work, and at the end of each chapter are encouraged to use the newly introduced concepts to suggest improvements to them. Scientists and students at all levels will benefit from the practical advice in this book. Sarah Farley, Chemistry World

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Im Gegensatz zu vielen anderen Schreibratgebern behandelt "Writing Science" weniger die diversen formalen Vorschriften, die es für das Schreiben eines Research Paper gibt. Im Vordergrund stehen eher die Fragen wie man eine schlüssige Argumentation entwickelt (und sprachlich umsetzt) und beim Leser die Neugierde und die Lust auf Mehr weckt. Das Buch gibt es zwar nur in englischer Sprache, aber es ist so einfach geschrieben, dass man es als Non-Native leicht verstehen kann.

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch beschreibt detailliert Dinge, die beim Verfassen wissenschaftlicher Texte beachtet werden sollen. Es enthält viele praktische Tipps, wie man einen Text sinnvoll und verständlich strukturieren kann und wie man bessere Sätze schreiben kann. Besonders gut gefallen hat mir, dass dem Autor verständliches Schreiben wichtig ist.

A must read for scientists at all levels 8. Dezember 2011
Von Brad - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are lots of books on science writing available and they take you painstakingly through every nuance of structure and detail required to produce a scientific manuscript. This book is different. It focuses on how to write a compelling story. I have 70 published papers in international, peer-reviewed journals; and I want to go back to each and every one of them and rewrite them with the messages from this book clear in my head and clear to the reader. This book focuses on you as a writer first and foremost, and a scientist second. It distills what I've been trying to teach my own students, with insight and clarity far more considered and polished than my own, in an engaging and fun read. If you want to write proposals that get funded, and papers that get widely-cited, then read this book and put its lessons to work. I loved the book: it's now the lab-group reading for next semester.

Incredibly helpful and surprisingly entertaining 18. Juni 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book was much more useful than I thought it would be. My expectation was that it would contain some helpful pointers, but that it would not revolutionize my writing. Having nearly 30 papers/book chapters, more than 1000 citations, and some funded proposals under my belt already, I thought I had a decent grasp on scientific writing. This book helped me realize that I had a lot to learn - and then taught it to me! The best part about it is that it solidifies nebulous ideas about good and bad writing, and provides concrete ways to organize your writing, from the level of the whole paper down to individual sentences. Now I wish I could go back in time to rewrite all of my previous papers!

Also, I was expecting this book to be helpful, but dry read, but was pleasantly surprised by how engaging it was. Who would have thought that a book on science writing would actually be entertaining and funny, while being reassuring at the same time? It really is an entertaining and easy read, though.

I have already had all of my graduate students read this book, and have been talking about it incessantly at meetings. My postdoc has been doing the same thing - without any prompting from me. It has had a profound influence on the way the folks in my lab think about science writing, and has altered my perspective on writing forever. Be warned, however, that after you read this book you will want to start relentlessly editing all of the scientific writing you read.

Really good non-fiction book on writing which is actually interesting like a best seller fiction book 6. Dezember 2011
Von Avi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is not a fiction book you read before you go to bed. It is one of "boring" science related books; probably more aimed towards people who just started their career in science as PhD student. However, this book excited me by its clear messages and very engaging writing style. If you are scientist you don't hear every day or even at all that science writing is "STORY TELLING". This main message clearly stuck in my head. Author does not just plainly said so, he eloquently "told" his "story" about "story telling" with well-chosen examples from published articles and enriched it with his extensive experience in reviewing numerous grant proposal and papers. He didn't stop with only "story telling"; he presented techniques how to do in the second part of his book. Overall this was probably the best book on this subject by not only its content, but also its writing style. Therefore I would definitely recommend this book to read.

must-read for every graduate student or scientist 30. Oktober 2012
Von Everyman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I recently read this book as well as David Lindsay's Scientific Writing = Thinking in Words. Both are good, but of the two, Schimel's book is more complete, more nuanced, and more fun to read. His main focus is that, in order to be read, remembered, and cited, you must present your work as an interesting story. He explains the elements of storytelling as they relate to science writing, and how to employ those elements throughout your paper. Each chapter has examples throughout and exercises at the end.

I recommend both Schimel's book and Lindsay's for anyone who has to write about scientific research. If you want to choose only one, Lindsay is quicker, but Schimel is better.

There are very few scientists, let alone students, who will not benefit substantially from a careful read of this book 28. Oktober 2013
Von Paul Grogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Writing is not easy; writing well is very difficult. As readers, we are deluged with a seemingly exponentially increasing number of science papers. Consequently, we are becoming ever more ruthless and discriminating in `sorting the wheat from the chaff'. Therefore, as authors, if we want our papers and grant proposals to fall into the former category, almost all of us need to substantially improve our writing. This book clearly describes the fundamental principles and practices of writing clear, synthetic, and easily readable science text that is likely to enthuse and inspire your readers. As such, it will be of great benefit to graduate students in developing their writing skills, but I anticipate that it will be of even more value to those who are already experienced in the whole science writing process.

In writing the book, Dr. Schimel practiced what he preaches. It is an excellent and entertaining read, with lots of stimulating and interesting anecdotes and broad linkages (such as to the speeches and writings of Winston Churchill and other non-scientists). The structure, flow and readability of the book are exemplary (as one would expect), but in addition he makes excellent use of short tight and longer more expansive sentences, as well as dashes and semi-colons. Furthermore, the text includes some real gems including why the process of writing science actually improves the intellectual quality of your science, and why when someone else edits your work, or you edit theirs, the initial edited text changes may be changed again - even changed back to the original text! There are very useful chapters dedicated to the particular challenges of writing science for non-native English speakers, and of writing successfully for non-specialist public audiences. Furthermore, there's a whole chapter of excellently described ideas for dealing with the thorny issue of the various limitations that underlie almost any science study. Finally, the author analyses numerous relevant examples of scientific text for their strengths and weaknesses, and even includes several whole paragraphs which he systematically improves through a detailed series of suggested remedies.

Overall, this really excellent book is likely to greatly benefit not just science students, but also a huge proportion of apparently `fully fledged' scientists. Understanding and applying the tools described here will benefit both your writing and your science.
