Writing a Book Review FROM Purdue Owl. Purdue University. Online Writing Lab



"Book reviews typically evaluate recently-written works. They offer a brief description of the texts key points and often provide a short appraisal of the strengths and weaknesses of the work.



Readers sometimes confuse book reviews with book reports, but the two are not identical. Book reports commonly describe what happens in a work; their focus is primarily on giving an account of the major plot, characters, and/or main idea of the work. Most often, book reports are a K-12 assignment and range from 250 to 500 words. If you are looking to write a book report, please see the OWL resource, Writing a Book Report.



By contrast, book reviews are most often a college assignment, but they also appear in many professional works: magazines, newspapers, and academic journals. They typically range from 500-750 words, but may be longer or shorter. A book review gives readers a sneak peek at what a book is like, whether or not the reviewer enjoyed it, and details on purchasing the book."

Writing a Book Review



Writing a book review

By:Peh, W. C. G. (wilfred.peh@...) ; Ng, K. H.

Pages:685-688

Published:SEP 2010



Abstract



"A book review is a form of academic writing that provides a succinct yet critical analysis evaluating the content, style, merit and significance of a book. The reader should gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the book, aided by input from the reviewer. The four stages of writing a book review are: introducing the book, outlining its contents, highlighting parts of the book by selecting particular chapters or themes, and giving a detailed evaluation."

Book review From Wikipedia



A book review is a form of literary criticism in which a book is analyzed based on content, style, and merit.[1] A book review can be a primary source opinion piece, summary review or scholarly review.[2] Books can be reviewed for printed periodicals, magazines and newspapers, as school work, or for book web sites on the Internet. A book review's length may vary from a single paragraph to a substantial essay. Such a review may evaluate the book on the basis of personal taste. "Reviewers may use the occasion of a book review for a display of learning or to promulgate their own ideas on the topic of a fiction or non-fiction work."

Writing Book Reviews in Political Science



Content of a book review:

A book review should answer three questions --

1.) What is the writer of the book trying to communicate?

2.) How clearly and convincingly did the author get his/her message across to the reader?

3.) Was the message worth reading?



Argument of a book review:



Like all political science papers, book reviews assert a claim -- they do more than summarize what the author says. The thesis of your book review will respond to questions 2 and 3 above: Is the argument of the book compelling? Did the author convince you of his point, and how significant is this point?

H-Net Reviews



"H-Net Reviews in the Humanities and Social Sciences is an online scholarly review resource. Charlotte Weber and Basia Nowak are Editors of H-Net Reviews. Each H-Net discussion network has its own review editor. Once posted to individual H-Net networks, reviews are posted to H-Review and archived on this site. The ISSN for H-Net reviews is 1538-0661.



H-Net Reviews bring a new dimension to the world of academic publishing. Our reviews are published online via discussion networks and the H-Net web site. This permits our reviews to reach scholars with a speed unmatched in any other medium. It also makes a new kind of interactivity possible, as reviewers, authors and readers engage in discussions of the reviews online. Through the power of e-mail and the web H-Net has helped pioneer online scholarly reviewing.



The Reviews archive is separated into annual volumes. You can browse through the volumes or use our powerful search feature to assist in finding reviews. Our review guidelines are available for online reference."

    Hi All,

    This has nothing to do specifically with Groups.io. There's a phishing attack going on right now 
    that's apparently fairly widespread, involving Google Docs invites. If you receive an unexpected 
    invite to a Google Doc, don't click it, delete it.

    As a reminder, and in general, you should turn on two factor authentication for all your accounts, 
    including your email account and your Groups.io account.

    Cheers,
    Mark

    Friends,
    Nine employees at Brookwood School just got targeted with the same malicious email disguised 
    as a shared Google Doc.  (The listserv doesn't allow me to attach a screenshot)  
    The emails all came from someone the recipient knew.  Mousing-over the link for "Open in Docs" 
    reveals that it DOES APPEAR to point to Google BUT buried in the link is a "redirect" to a 
    malicious website.  I haven't dug into all of them but so far the redirect points to these domains:
            googledocs.g-cloud-DOT-win
            googledocs.g-docs-DOT-pro

    Apparently we're not the only school being targeted.  
    These universities just posted information about the same malicious emails:


    Stay safe!

    Beware of Active Widespread Phishing Scam


    Many members of the Temple community are receiving a phishing email inviting them to share a Google Doc. Do not click on any links on any of these invitations unless you call the sender to verify that they actually sent it to you.

    Please be aware that this is currently a far-reaching scam, not limited to Temple University as reported in the news.

    Use extra caution with any email that asks you to click on a link or provide any personal information. There is a good chance that you will continue to receive similar phishing messages from other sources. 

    If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk via tuhelp.temple.edu or call 215-204-8000.
