There are also chapters addressed particularly to those scientists to whom English is a foreign language and to those in North America. The last chapter gives information about dictionaries, style books and other literature. The book draws on the author s wealth of experience in presenting his own work and in editing the work of others, and he draws his examples from a range of subjects.
