Careers: Writing/Book on Regeneration


Hi, I am Ajay, a biomedical science student and am currently engaged in tail regeneration experiments in mice. I want to write a really cool non-fication book on regeneration(from its research history, biological processes to current approaches in research), with what a brief history of time did for physics in mind. I would like some suggestions on how to present/design my book in such a way that people find it cool to read biology again.

Thank you so much for your time,

Hi Ajay - This sounds like a great project, but your question is quite broad. My main suggestions are:
- Keep the book, the chapters, the paragraphs and the sentences short.
- Use catchy, accessible chapter titles or headlines.
- Possibly include yourself in the book in the first person, referencing your own history and understanding of the topic. General readers find it easier to relate to specific individuals than to abstract ideas.
- Use pictures or graphs if they're clear and easy to understand.

I wish you all the best with the project. If you have a more specific question, let me know.
