Books to help you write proposals that get funded and papers that get cited

These books have been helpful to me in my professional development. I only recommend books I’ve read and have found helpful.

Books are divided into the topics I'm asked about most frequently. Check to see whether these texts are available in your local library, or through an independent bookseller in your city. FYI: If you do decide to buy using the links below, the bookseller will pay me a small commission.
