This volume would be an ideal resource for developing and structuring a new graduate student course in the biological sciences. The information conveyed is up to date, well organized, and imperative for todays scientists, both young and established. THE QUARTERLY REVIEW OF BIOLOGY Divan has clearly used her experience working with bioscience students to write an organized strategy for communication success. The author's own communication skills as evidenced by this guide, are exemplary. Communication Skills serves up a no-nonsense approach to bioscience research with the aim of conveying that graduate work in the biosciences is important, and it is important that it be done right. Karen L. Wellner, Arizona State University Aysha Divan has got the content of the book just right. The chapters go into the right amount of detail and provide lots of lovely references for further reading, the vast majority of which I have never been told about before. Many of the chapters would also be very useful to undergraduates gaining experience in a lab or writing up final year projects/dissertations. I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone doing an undergraduate degree, masters or PhD; I would even say that most Post Docs would learn a thing or two! James Sleigh, Student, University of Bath Divan's book transforms oral tradition into a tangible 'how to' guide and teaching tool that supervisors would do well to share with their students. Rich in content but sensibly organized, Communication Skills would work well as the basis of a communications course for senior undergraduates or beginning graduate students. If students - and seasoned researchers - follow her strategies, they will undoubtedly find the process of preparing a research proposal, presentation or thesis more manageable and efficient - if not pain-free!
