Book Review

Introducing Scientific Communication: A Practical Guide; Brake, Mark L., Weitkamp, Emma, Eds.; Palgrave Macmillan: New York, 2010. $33.95. (Hardcover) 177 pp., ISBN 978-02305373864.

Excellent text or reference for scientific journalism, for presentation of science to policy makers and the general public. Scientific journalism is a viable but underutilized alternative career path for chemists and scientists for which a few universities are developing courses. (Previously reviewed by R. Buntrock, J. Chem. Educ., 87(11), 1138-1139, 2010, doi: 10.1021/ed100855.)
