The usefulness of this manual is indicated by the fact that it now appears in the third edition. It is a straight account of the details of good writing and the preparation of scientific manuscripts with actual examples so as to make the matter quite clear to the author. While the book is calculated primarily for the engineer, it has useful information and advice for those in every field of science. It should not be considered, however, as primarily a book for the physician, since the volume published by the American Medical Association and that originally published by Mrs. Mellish for the Mayo Clinic are preferable for medical writers.
