'I was especially impressed with the book's focus on audience, which infuses almost every chapter...John Kirkman provided an excellent discussion on writing for an audience, including some of the latest research on how readers read, an aspect of audience analysis often overlooked by authors of technical communication texts...I would not hesitate to recommend it to participants in a workshop for doctors or researchers who are writing for novices'
Carolyn Boiarsky, Technical Communication, Volume 56, Number 3, 3 August 2009 -- Carolyn Boiarsky * Technical Communication *
'The book is indeed complete and speaks to novice writers or students who may be new to the health professions, as well as knowledgeable clinicians and researchers who need help compiling examination questions, writing press releases, or adding publications to their resumes...besides a thorough back-of-the-book index, the book has useful appendixes...anyone involved in the health professions, whether readers or writers, will appreciate and enjoy this book...is a joy to read by any lover of language and its many applications.'
Elizabeth H. Wood. Journal of the Medical Library Association. 2008 January; 96(1): 70 -- Elizabeth H. Wood * Journal of the Medical Library Association *
'This book is a tour-de-force of virtually all aspects of medical writing. It is a comprehensive, yet practical guide to the conception, preparation, and presentation of material in written form...this book delivers. It is difficult to imagine an area of medical writing that is not covered by this comprehensive and practical guide, and it is difficult to imagine any medical professional, at any level, not finding something extremely useful in it.'
Robert B. Raffa, Temple University School of Pharmacy. July 2007. Doody Enterprises, Inc. -- Robert B. Raffa
"Although very comprehensive the chapters are well written and easy to follow, with tables of handy hints and tips which summarise the key messages from each chapter...this book is an essential addition to any hospital or academic pharmacy department...a book like this is a valuable resource to encourage more pharmacists to take up the writing and documentation role"
Sinead McCool, Course Co-ordinator, UCC/CACT MSc Clinical Pharmacy. The Irish Pharmacy Journal, 2007, July 2007 -- Sinead McCool * The Irish Pharmacy Journal *
