Editorial Reviews


"... a fascinating exploration of past and current trends, with some insight into what the future may hold."
Rachel Zelkowitz, Science News

"This book is most valuable for its broad but organized perspective on science communication and for its wealth of relevant historical and policy information. Rather than easy answers, readers will likely come away with hard questions about how best to proceed in their careers, education, and their lives as people in the service of communicating science. The depth of the author's experience makes for a treatise that is unparalleled in its perspectives on the field of science communication."
Doody's Review Service

"The book provides a great overview of the development of scientific literature and all of its implications, making it a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the publication of scientific results."
Jens Lichtenberg, reviews.com

"Based on the author's considerable research and reflection, this book is both interesting and illuminating. Anyone with even a peripheral interest in science will gain a deeper appreciation of science as a complex dimension of human civilization by reading this work. Highly recommended."
V.V. Raman, Choice Magazine
