Review:

"This guide helps writers render a thesis or grant application that stands out from the competition."—Science

"This little book is a concise guide to the process of writing proposals, with emphasis on styles for agencies like NSF, EPA, USDA, and USGS. . . . The book is a great resource for students writing their first thesis proposal and for practicing professionals at all levels of experience."—Fisheries, A Bulletin of the American Fisheries Society

"This inexpensive book could prove to be your best investment of the year. It is a step-by-step guide to the preparation of a high-quality research proposal in the natural sciences."—BioScience

"A practical guide . . . the authors provide a useful model that can be adapted and tailored to fit each unique situation. . . . Timely issues such as interdisciplinary research, ethical concerns, and intellectual property rights are included. A bibliography and a listing of WebSite addresses for funding agencies add to the usefulness of this very readable title. Recommended for academic, public and special libraries."—E-Streams

"An exceptional handbook for first time authors, or as a text for a graduate level course in proposal preparation. . . . This exceptionally useful and affordable handbook will serve as a refresher to seasoned writers and as a guide and source of encouragement for first-time authors."—C.L. Sagers, Ecology

"[This book], written by scientists with practical knowledge of grant writing, is a good primer for writers with little experience in this area. For instructors teaching courses that include proposals, it is a good resource. The chapters have the flavor of class lectures, and exercises at the end of each might be valuable for class work. . . . Readability and brevity make the book a good starting place for one interested in developing skills in grantsmanship."—Martha Davis, Journal of Natural Resources & Life Science

"The volume can be used as a text in class, a guide for a lab support group, or a self-help manual for an individual investigator."—Science, Books, & Films

"A good primer for writers with little experience in this area. For instructors teaching courses that include proposals, it is a good resource. . . .

"Whether you’re a first-time grant writer chasing funding or a seasoned researcher putting tweaks on an existing proposal, Andrew J. Friedland and Carol L. Folt provide invaluable guidance. . . . Every stage of the proposal-writing process is explored."—Kirkus Reviews

"Friedland and Folt are the Strunk and White of proposal writing. They have written a clear, concise guide to scientific proposal writing that captures the essence of the scientific enterprise. Their theme for beginning proposal writers is: organize, funnel and focus, a concept that experienced investigators could benefit from."—Graeme Berlyn, Professor of Anatomy and Physiology of Trees, Yale University School of Forestry and Environmental Studies

"An important, engaging, and substantive book. The authors lead the reader through the proposal maze logically and clearly."—David Schimel, National Center for Atmospheric Research
