A key strategy in preparing a grant proposal is to think about the proposal from the perspective of a reviewer. Reviewers work very hard.

This work requires a great deal of concentration and reflection, and it also requires time taken from schedules that are already packed. The recommendations in this chapter are intended to help make proposals as reviewer-friendly as possible.
