Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

“The author presents the information, interspersing it with a number of personal reflections and stories, references, and quotations, making it a very pleasant read. … the audience is students, clinicians, educators, and researchers. The author is an experienced writer, which is clear in his approach and the candor of his writing. … Unquestionably, this is necessary reading for anyone interested in publishing medical information and a must of every university medical library.” (Vincent F. Carr, Doody’s Review Service, November, 2011)

“Medical writing became a must not only in academic medical life, but also in all aspects of basic and clinical medicine. A guide for medical writing in useful for students, for preparation of their theses, for scientists, in order to write grant applications, for clinicians, to prepare case reports. All aspects of medical writing are covered, from basic writing skills to technical issues, focusing on special features required by the field. … the book should be present in all laboratories and clinical departments … .” (C. Badiu, Acta Endocrinologica, Vol. VIII (2), April-June, 2012)
