A Guide . . .
to Better Medical Writing
By James H. Dempster, M.A., M.D.
Editor of The Journal of the Michigan State Medical
Society and Lecturer on Medical Writing, College of
Medicine, Wayne University

This book, written by a physician who is
also an editor as well as author of medical
papers, renders valuable aid and suggestion
to the writer on medical subjects. Coming as
it does at a time when the individual accom-
plishments of physician and surgeon are al-
most immediately available in the printed
word to all of the profession, it is a much
needed guide to the preparation of better
medical writing.
Every medical writer who strives for the prop-
er clarity of meaning as well as conciseness
will find this book a great help.
