Scientifically Speaking: A Dictionary of Quotations, Second Edition

Buy
In 1995 I needed a book of statistical quotations. When I went to the library I found that there wasn’t such a book and so decided to compile my own. That book of statistical quotations has now grown into a series of six science quotation books. Scientifically Speaking: A Dictionary of Quotations, the sixth book of the series, is the largest compilation of published science quotations available to readers. It is a book that is designed to be entertaining but not authoritive; informative but not instructive. The purpose of the book is to present quotations so that the reader can gain an idea as to the depth and breadth of the subject of science and, also, to help the reader ‘capture the visions and the styles of the scientists’ of both the past and of the present. The bibliography is intended for those individuals who may wish to search for more details about the quotations listed.

With so many well-written books of quotations on the market is another book of quotations really needed? We and our publisher agreed that there was a need since the standard dictionaries of quotations, for whatever cause, are sorely weak in providing entries devoted to quotations on science. Scientifically Speaking fills that need.
