Scientists must write
The book starts with advice on how to organise your work - I guess that some people might find this a bit over-presciptive. It goes on to advise on the choice of words, and issues of spelling and grammar. This is followed by a look at the use of graphs, illustrations and tables of information in a document. There are two chapters which go into the detail of writing a scientific report, with plenty of checklists to make sure that you remember everything. The book also has chapters on how to find and cite information from other scientists, and on giving a talk on a scientific subject.
