Description: What science writers ultimately cover -- and convey to the reading public -- is the forefront of human knowledge, the leading edge of our understanding of the universe and of ourselves. Now, in A Field Guide for Science Writers, the official guide of the National Association of Science Writers, budding journalists and veteran reporters have a superb roadmap to this exciting area of journalism.

Here some three dozen of the best known science writers in the U.S. share their hard-earned knowledge on how they do their job. From covering -- and surviving -- a deadly epidemic, to getting the inside scoop from a toxic waste inspector, to breaking the story on an emerging field of astrophysics, each article brims with detailed, nuts-and-bolts information. In addition, the guide offers practical tips on Science writing -- from investigative reporting to pitching ideas to magazine editors. Finally, a superb appendix offers a goldmine of resources. If you want to be a science writer, this book will be your bible.
