Review:

"This is an excellent book, which will prove valuable to many readers in different settings, not just students or educators." (Nursing Times, 4 December 2012)

"All first-year students would benefit from this text when writing their first paper, poster and presentation, regardless of their writing background." (Times Higher Education Supplement, 8 November 2012)

"This is an excellent book, which will prove valuable to many readers in different settings, not just students or educators. The parameters that govern a paper or presentation related to psychology are beautifully outlined here, and the guidelines offered could not be clearer." (Nursing Times.net, December 2012)
