The writing style is extremely clear and concise, presenting the most important concepts and advices in a very straightforward way. Contents are organized in very short chapters, so you can immediately get the picture and start improving your skills. It also has many funny stories and comics that help you enjoy the reading.
In brief: if you want to master in good scientific papers, budget proposals, writing your doctoral thesis, good presentations... This should be your first choice.
Final note for non-native English speakers/writers like me: you will find invaluable references at the end of the book about how to use adequate connectors and expressions, as well as a whole chapter specifically devoted to how to write science in English as a second language.
When one look at scientific articles, not all papers follow this pattern.
This book guide beginners how to summarize ideas into a paper. In that view point, it's worth as an example.
Once as you get used to be, you will be getting better in scientific writing.
