How to write a book review

Writing a review for a clinical text book allows evaluation of a book for one’s own purposes as well as for others by expressing views or opinions regarding the book’s scope, layout and relevancy. The aim should be to help the reader determine whether or not the book is appropriate for their resource needs. The format of such a review should be easy to read, to the point and displayed in relevant paragraphs.
