With this new edition, Science and Technical Writing confirms its position as the definitive style resource for thousands of established and aspiring technical writers. Editor Philip Rubens has fully revised and updated his popular 1992 edition, with full, authoritative coverage of the techniques and technologies that have revolutionized electronic communications over the past eight years.


"The book really shines when it tackles the specifics of science writing. The sections on scientific terms and symbols; technology terms; units of measurement; mathematical expressions; equations; and citations, notes, and references are invaluable for those who frequently deal with these issues." -- Bob Andrews,Technical Communication
