Well-written, filled with examples, and clean.

You can definitely use this as a timeless reference tool, and trust me if it's your thing it's a fun book to read through like any other. I'm like that, and I found this book to be a golden tome of knowledge and tools.
5.0 out of 5 stars useful for professionals too, not just students Feb. 18 2014

I was working on a long and complicated journal article, and decided to do a "refresher course" (on my own) in scientific writing. I borrowed this book from the University Library, and found it so helpful that I ordered a copy. The explanations, recommendations, and examples are clear and effective. The book provides tools and guidelines that I will continue to use in the future.
