This book introduces the basic techniques and methods traditionally used in speaking about science to the public. The public often has a very different perception and understanding of science, and this must be taken into account when communicating with the public. This volume covers methods of scientific discourse, oral communication, preparation of the presentation, techniques and use of visual resources, and exercises for perfecting the technique of speaking in public about science.

Speaking in Public About Science: A Quick Guide for the Preparation of Good Lectures, Seminars, and Scientific Presentations is a concise yet comprehensive resource that will be of value to beginners and senior scholars and researchers.

Reviews

“It will teach the scientist and those who working in the academia to speak about science to the lay public. … This is an excellent book, with a very good price. Well written by one expert in talk about science in public. I recommend this book to all scientists that have some interests in publicizing his work to the wide public. Good presentations!” (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, June, 2016)
