Description - Getting into Print by Prof. Peter Sprent

This is a practical guide to all aspects of writing about science and technology. It is crammed with useful hints on how to make each kind of writing more attractive to the target readership. It also includes detailed advice on how to approach publishers, publishers' contracts and requirements and the author's role at each stage of book production, including tips on presentation of manuscripts on disc or as camera-ready copy. There is clear guidance on the best way to use tables, graphs and diagrams and on how to present formulae and choose examples and exercises. Advice is given for overcoming the often neglected problem of catering for users with widely different technical backgrounds when writing instruction manuals. Careful preparation is given to the preparation of research and technical reports and writing for the media. The problems facing authors writing in English when this is not their first language are also tackled.
