My Thoughts: I first heard of this book through J. Kaye's Book Blog. I have searched the internet and books for info on how to write good book reviews, but I never found anything as detailed as this. I was worried it would get too technical, but the book didn't. It was easy to understand and I'll probably use it frequently. I especially found the part on reviewing children books helpful. It's a small part, but has some good pointers.

Wow! You totally made my day when I read this. I loved the book too. Some of the pointers I've applied, but I'm an amateur through and! At least now I know what it is I am doing wrong. ;)
