From the reviews of the second edition:

“Alley’s book as an important and must-read guide for anyone in the scientific field. Professors, researchers and students will greatly benefit from Alley’s work. The book also has the benefit of being short and concrete–a plus for the busy scientist.” (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, March, 2014)

“The second edition ... of this readable and informative volume highlights 13 critical errors to avoid in scientific presentations. Alley (Virginia Tech) provides examples through words and images about how to best convey ideas and meaning by understanding, connecting with, and engaging the audience. … This is a valuable work for academic and research libraries supporting, in particular, faculty, researchers, and graduate students. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty.” (J. Clemons, Choice, Vol. 51 (5), January, 2014)
