I would strongly recomment this book for anyone who writes for an academic audience. It provides an excllent set of ideas for the novice as well as helpful reminders for the experienced academic.
Dr. Karl Moore, Templeton College, Oxford University
A very well organised book that does well to frame itself for both experienced academics and those starting out. I particularly enjoyed the exercises, these added a great deal of value to the starting process of writing and motivated me to start writing! (almost fools you into doing it, before you know where you are theres a half decent paper in the making on your desk in front of you).
I have only one issue with the book as it stands - and this is small. The chapter on presentation (9) seemed a little out of place (as in conference presentation not written), perhaps a stronger link between this and its relevance for academic writing may have been made.
Otherwise a very engaging book thats written to be easily digested and acted upon. I defy anyone having read this not to walk away feeling energised about the prospect of getting your ideas out into the academic community.
More please ! perhaps a text for PhD candidates specifically?
This is written for academics in the field of organisational theory (and adjacent fields). The book provides very useful advice of how to get your manuscript published.

The book doesn't say much what is really a good manuscript because the book is about getting published. That is not the same as having something valuable to say. If you have a crappy manuscript and adhere to the advice in this book, you still increase your chances of having your manuscript published. If you have a good manuscript you still need to adhere to the advice in this book. So you still need to read this book.

If your ambition level is to write a good manuscript (in addition to being published) you should also read Van de Ven's "Engaged Scholarship" (quite simple, practical) and Elster's "Explaining Social Behaviour" (more complex, theoretical, abstract) plus relevant articles that you are exposed to only in good PhD programmes.
