Melnick on Writing: An Anthology of Columns from the American Medical Writers Association Journal (Paperback)
Melnick on Writing is a collection of the first ten years of columns published in the American Medical Writers Association Journal under that eponymous title -- forty in total. They represent the author's comments on all phases of writing. The columns range from serious commentaries about grammar and usages, to writings about writing, to humorous commentaries, to managing writer's block, to just plain cute thoughts -- most all with medical slants. The columns are all practical and written in a flowing, colloquial style. In a way, this anthology is a commentary on present-day medical writing by showing the problems, solutions and differing ideas on the state of medical writing (and sometimes on writing in general).
