Why write a book about writing book reviews? The answer is self-evident. There is no one book that can completely and adequately cover this broad topic, no matter how comprehensive such a book might be. The wide diversity, and individuality, of readers and reviewers alike, make writing book reviews a highly personal activity. Scott Berkun said, “We read for different reasons, but we often write reviews as if everyone in the world is just like us.” This book will take the position that a well-written book review, positive or negative, will ultimately be helpful to a majority of people. The aim of this book is to help readers to write helpful book reviews, using an inductive, analysis-driven approach to get there.
