Many professional people in science and technology have an excellent command of their scientific subject, but have difficulty in expressing their knowledge in simple, accurate English. Good Style explains the tactics that can be used to express scientific information in a coherent, readable style. The book discusses in detail possible choices of vocabulary, phrasing and sentence structure. Each piece of advice is supported by many examples of writing from a variety of scientific and technical contexts.
Good Style has become a standard reference book on the shelf of students of science, technology, medicine, and computing, and is an essential aid to all professionals whose work involves writing of reports, papers, guides, manuals, or on-screen texts (including material to be presented on the web).
