Reviews - What do customers think about Mastering Scientific and Medical Writing: A Self-help Guide?

Excellent but incomplete  Apr 3, 2008
I would like to give this book a 5 star rating but will settle for 4 as it doesn't tell the whole story and fails to say so. Rogers' very opening phrase, i.e. that "The main purpose of scientific writing is to record data" is like saying the purpose of my reading the book is to open the book on page 1 and start reading from the left to right, top to bottom and then, turn to page 2 once page 1 has been read. No, recording data is `what' I do, but not 'why' I do it. The reason why one writes science is to persuade others to accept one's claim. (see in this regard the excellent Writing Biology: texts in the Social Construction of Scientific Knowledge by Greg Myers). This mis-identified purpose leads to leaving out all the important persuasive strategies (eg. hedging) used to get scientific work published and accepted.

Having said this, the book is very well written, clear and neatly organised and with lots of useful (and indeed vital if you want to get published) info for both mother and non-mother tongue writers. I have put it on recommended reading list for courses I teach in medical writing.
