As somebody in the sciences, I can personally attest that there are LOTS of people who don't know how to write. Not only are they bad at it, they don't ever take the time to learn - mainly because they don't think its important.
Clearly communicating to your boss and your peers is an immense help in the sciences and I would highly recommend this book as a great intro to somebody looking to improve their writing and style.
