HASH(0x96e65408) étoiles sur 5 Great book for writers--not just science writers 23 mai 2013
Par Tho - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I happened to crack this open during an especially challenging week of freelancing. I was dealing with a difficult editor (see Working with Editors--and Their Edits, Chapter 8) and had signed on for too many dead-end projects (Multilancing, Chapter 10, and Sustainable Science Writing, Chapter 26). It didn't help that a few acquaintances had landed great gigs that same week (Beyond Compare, Chapter 14). This book really helped me move on with its clear, practical advice and reminders that these sorts of troubles aren't so unique or hopeless. As a new freelancer, I found the chapters on the business of writing (Chapters 19-26) especially helpful in laying out a plan for making this a sustainable career. Reading this book helped me to put everything back in perspective, and I keep it on my desk to refer to whenever I start to lose that.

HASH(0x96e65810) étoiles sur 5 The definitive resource for today's science writing profession 12 mai 2013
Par R. Olson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an outstandingly practical and useful book that every new science writer needs as the essential starting point in the profession. It covers a wide array of topics with an impressively large group of authors. Science writing has come a long way in the past three decades. This is the book that is needed for today's science writing world.

Not to date myself too much, but I remember the pivotal year for science writing in America -- 1980. That year saw the debut of two commercial, broad magazines for science (more broad than the stodgy Scientific American at the time) -- one that made it (Discover) and one that bit the dust (Science 80, which was eventually absorbed by Discover). At the same time several major science writing programs were launched including the one at M.I.T. that I had a close friend in the inaugural class. Science writing has come a long way since.

It's a new world with the internet and a world where prospective science writers desperately need the advice not of some dinosaurs (kinda like some of the professors I had in film school who hadn't made a film since before the age of computers), but of multiple working science writers of today.

This is exactly that book, and assembled by Thomas Hayden, who is the sort of veteran of both the working world (was a science writer with US News and World Report) and the teaching world (now at Stanford). It takes both sets of skills to make a book that will be useful and coherent, as he has done with this book.

The various chapters pretty much take you from start to full speed in a science writing career -- all written in very personable, conversational writing styles. Actually, now that I think of it, that's kind of the crucial test for something like this -- really wouldn't work well to have a book on how to establish a career in writing that was poorly written (and yet, I just read a popular book on screenwriting that's exactly that -- poorly written).

Have to say of all the chapters, my favorites are the ones on rejection and envy by Rosner and Nijhuis. Love that Hilary even got rejected by her house cleaner. I've had days like that.

Really a great book assembled by the right group. When I was in science graduate school we came to realize the important resource was not our hyper-busy professors but rather our peer group of grad students. There's a similar feel to this valuable and practical book.

HASH(0x96e65618) étoiles sur 5 Intimate and Authoritative 24 mai 2013
Par Jeremy Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Congratulations to the handbook contributors and editors -- I bought it, read it, loved it.

They do a great job of conveying their own intimate intelligent voice(s)/experience(s) without ever losing objectivity and authority.

Want to know the difference between "percent" and "percentage points"? The best thing a book contract gives you (hint: not money)? How to query editors and when to follow-up? The most important notes to take when reporting on scene? How to deal with rejection -- and jealousy of another writer's success? It's all in here.

As a reference text, how-to, inspiration, or master class, the handbook is great for just about anyone writing about just about anything. I've published plenty and I still found something to learn (and re-learn!) on every page.

HASH(0x96e65c18) étoiles sur 5 An excellent, savvy guidebook 21 juin 2013
Par Dennis Meredith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
While this excellent guide is titled The Science Writers' Handbook, it will be be helpful to any freelancer. It will be a great addition to any journalism curriculum. More broadly it will benefit scientists contemplating writing for popular media, and in fact any scientists wanting to understand the freelance journalists interviewing them for stories. The book uniquely goes beyond covering the techniques of freelance science writing, which it explains extremely well. It also offers invaluable advice about the business, personal and ethical complexities of the career, told by a cadre of savvy freelancers. Among the many things I liked about the book was the authors' willingness not only to tell of their triumphs, but also their failures and what they learned from them.

HASH(0x96e65c3c) étoiles sur 5 An essential, enlightening guide for science writers 18 mai 2013
Par Roberta - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a fantastic resource for novice and experienced science writers. What I appreciated most was that it addressed not only journalism issues such as reporting and constructing narratives, but also topics important to freelancers such as work-life balance, health insurance, and contract negotiation. A readable and witty guide for navigating the new landscape of science journalism.
