Your review need not be very long but should include the following 5 things,
First, General Information on the book.
Full Name of the book You would be surprized how many have similar Titles
Name of the Author After awhile you learn who to seek out and who to avoid
Number of Pages A few go weak in the knee's at anything over 400 pages
(If it is a E-book, oversized or a little pricey, that too is good to know)
Second, What is the book about and what does it try to convey to the reader
Third, What did you enjoy most, or what impessed you the most (content, writing, etc.)
Fourth, Where did the book fail to meet your expectations or could have been better
Lastly, your honest recomendation, is it worth reading, worth buying
Honestly I would prefer your own thoughts, in your own words, but links to professional reviews are acceptable if, They are in agreement with your feelings, They are reputable, and they don't lead to a tornado of pop-up's. The problem with links are that they sometimes drift into the Bermuda Triangle of cyberspace and are never seen again.
Thanks, and Happy Reading,
