Writing Science in Plain English

By Anne E. Greene

University of Chicago Press, 2013, 124 pages, $13


Anne Greene takes the mystery out of good, clear science writing by teaching her readers in a good, clear text. Greene is a biologist by training and teaches scientific writing in UM’s Wildlife Biology Program. In this book, she lays out basic principles—tell a story, design your paragraphs—with examples of successful and less successful pieces of writing. At the end of each section, she gives exercises for the serious student.
