Not an inveterate producer of bad science, mediocre writing or boring presentations, I have nonetheless yet to master all forms of science communication. This review of Eloquent science and Presentation skills for scientists is written from the point of view of a practicing scientist always interested in building competence rather than any sort of expert on science communication. In fact, at the time ofmy first reading of Eloquent science, I was rewriting a paper that had not, shall we say, passed gracefully through the peerreview process. Schultz’s book provided useful guidance that improved the paper at once. While there are plenty of books on communication skills for scientists, there is no doubt many students and professionals would benefit as I have from Schultz’s thorough how-to guide to becoming a better communicator of science.
