Head of Psychology at the University of Dundee and the author of Talking the talk

I use Scrivener for writing all my books and longer articles. I used it right from the beginning to produce my most recent book, Talking the talk: Language, Psychology, and Science. I like the way Scrivener works like a science writer thinks. The software makes it easy to keep track of material and the organisation of the document without getting too bogged down in formatting issues at an early stage. It also makes it easy to reorganise stuff and navigate through a very large document. I found the split pane feature particularly useful. The program is exceptionally stable and bug-free. It's easy to use and the documentation and support are superb. I can't now imagine writing a book in any other way.
