From the reviews:

"Here is a milestone of its kind that can be recommended to anybody involved, to any degree, in scientific communication, particularly in astronomy. … The guide is completed by a well-furnished glossary, an index, and lists of references and web links. … The book is very well presented, written in a good-humoured style, with an abundance of illustrations and practical details, together with examples from physics and astronomy. … this book will also be useful to the ordinary scientist in their daily professional communications." (A. Heck, The Observatory, Vol. 127 (1199), 2007)

"Lars Lindberg Christensen … has written a tour-de-force of practical information and advice for would-be science communicators. This softcover book offers a spectacular array of charts, tables, checklists, and case examples. … This is a book where you find both philosophical justifications for science communications and the most detailed practical data … . I highly recommend it." (Stephen P. Maran, Spark, Issue 7, January, 2009)
