Pressestimmen

From the reviews of the second edition:

"Zobel emphasizes that clarity … . my review would read as follows: buy this book. … The contents of the book are valuable, both as a reference … . has tailored his book quite specifically to computer science researchers. He presents valuable examples drawn from computer science papers … . This book is best suited to individual use. However, it could also serve as a supplementary text for a course on research methods. …" (Max Hailperin, Computing Reviews, February, 2005)

"I decided to recommend Zobel’s work to my advanced students and Ph.D. candidates. … An extra goody are the twenty exercises. They constitute a good start into raising many of the issues treated in the book. Many chapters give check-lists or lists of good practice. … His own way of writing demonstrates that there are helpful rules no writer should disobey. … Good writing, even in computing science, remains a process of experience and dialectics. Zobel’s book proves the point." (Frieder Nake, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1106 (8), 2007)

Synopsis

The elements of good writing are an essential part of success in science. With comprehensive practical help for students and experienced researchers, "Writing for Computer Science": gives extensive guidance for writing style and editing; presents sound practice for graphs, figures, and tables; guides the presentation of mathematics, algorithms and experiments; shows how to assemble research materials into a technical paper; and offers guidelines and advice on spoken presentations. This second edition contains detailed new material on research methods, the how-to of being a scientist, including: development of ideas into research programs; design and evaluation of experiments; how to search for, read, evaluate, and referee other research; and research ethics and the qualities that separate good and bad science. "Writing for Computer Science" is not only an introduction to the doing and describing of research, but is a handy reference for working scientists in computing and mathematical sciences.

If you think you want this book, you do want it. It's a great guide to writing any report/paper/book in the field of computer science. It has great suggestions for describing mathematics and algorithms, how to gather data from experiments and how to present it. It contains good advice about the general act of writing, and discusses some of the conventions followed in Comp. Sci. It is extremely well written - lucid and concise. It covers a great deal of material in only 175 pages. It is short enough that I often reread the relavent chapter before I sit down to write a section of a paper. For novices, it's a great introduction. For experts, you'll probably learn something and it is a good catalog of things to keep in mind while writing. (NOTE: I checked this book out of my school's library before I bought it; you might be able to do the same.)

I don't think I write much better right now. But I have taken some notes from this book that I hope will help me on this. The book is definitely well structured and easy to read. Nevertheless, I would remove some chapters that are not really related with the art of "writing".

This book might be a nice introduction for novices to the field, but I feel it is quite superficial. It covers a broad spectrum of issues (including style, setting math, table, and algorithms, ethics, editing, doing research and experiments in general and presentations) in a quite condensed from.

While the first 70 pages or so on style are a short summary of what you find in many (better) books on style, I found the letter sections, especially those on editing, refereeing and ethics superficial. They are merely mentioned with some general hints, but without specific advice that could help if you are actually editing a paper.

From my perception, it can serve as a nice introduction because it covers a broad field of topics, but it will not really help in the long run.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book with many examples 7. Dezember 2011
Von Pasquier Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
We used this book for my course on research skills at Cambridge and I must say it was a useful reading. The examples are pertinent and clear and the insight on how to write really useful. I would particularly recommend it for non-native speaker like myself.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Had to buy it for school. Liked it. 31. Oktober 2013

I had to buy it for a graduation thesis seminar. It turned out to be well written, interesting and very useful. I feel the advices really made writing scientific text much easier.

I read this book cover-to-cover during a Masters in Mobile Computing, and it has some gems. It will make a handy reference book later while I start a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction.

One can always use help to progress in ones field. One can never slow progress, and the technical attributes that one is task.... to informed others.
