Review:

...an invaluable resource for anyone interested in book reviews - writers, reviewers, publishers, publicists, librarians, booksellers and readers. There are examples of good and bad reviews and ways to handle adverse reactions to your review by the author, publisher and/or publicist. Also covered are the absolute don'ts of a review, i.e., don't give away the ending. --Francine Silverman, editor/publisher of The Book Promotion Newsletter.

...So you think you want to review books. Then this should be the next book you read. Find out if you have the right attitude, and tools that it will take to be a reviewer. I've been reviewing novels for about a year. I wish I'd had this book when I started. ...This book has found a permanent place on my reference book shelf. --Wanda C. Keesey, author of Lost In The Mist.
