Vorallem Naturwissenschaftler, die in der Regel in englischpublizieren, hätten es dringend nötig hier mal reinzuschauen.Die meisten Veröffentlichungen sind unlesbar (oder nur mit Kopfschmerzenlesbar), da unnötig lange, komplizierte Sätze, vollgestopft mitunnötigen Füllworten und buzzwords geschrieben werden.On Writing Well gibt eine klare Anleitung für verständliche(Fach)-Literatur.
It's a great little book – quite inspiring and a fluent read. Zinsser illuminates the craft from various angles – three of the many chapters are called "Unity", "The Audience", and "Humor" – and in a style that certainly makes you appreciate the, well, author's authority on the topic. For those that have a more intuitive approach towards writing, or need a concise reminder of what is actually involved in the business of writing well, this book is a must.
