Despite a few new cosmetic dabs here and there, this new edition shows most of the defects in organization and content that it has had from its first. (See the review of the third edition, Annals of Internal Medicine 71:220-223, 1969.) A number of other guides to scientific writing are much superior sources: Council of Biology Editors Style Manual, Scientific Writing for Graduate Students, Stylebook and Editorial Manual of the AMA, and How to Write Scientific and Technical Papers (Trelease). Not recommended.
