520    Scientific communication is challenging. The subject 
       matter is complex and often requires a certain level of 
       knowledge to understand it correctly; describing hazard 
       ratios, interpreting Kaplan Meier curves and explaining 
       confounding factors is different from talking about a new 
       car or clothing range. Processes, for example in clinical 
       trials, are laborious and tedious and knowing how much of 
       the detail to include and exclude requires judgement. 
       Conclusions are rarely clear cut making communicating 
       statistical risk and probability tough, especially to non-
       statisticians and non-scientists such as journalists. 
       Communicating Clearly about Science and Medicine looks at 
       these and many more challenges, then introduces powerful 
       techniques for overcoming them. It will help you develop 
       and deliver impactful presentations on medical and 
       scientific data and tell a clear, compelling story based 
       on your research findings. It will show you how to develop
       clear messages and themes, while adhering to the advice 
       attributed to Einstein: 'Make things as simple as possible
       ... but not simpler.'John Clare illustrates how to 
       communicate clearly the risks and benefits contained in a 
       complex data set, and balance the hope and the hype. He 
       explains how to avoid the 'miracle cure' or 'killer drug' 
       headlines which are so common and teaches you how to 
       combine the accuracy of peer-to-peer reviewed science with
       the narrative skills of journalism.
