An academic book review summarizes and critically assesses a text while placing it within the broader context of its subject area. Book reviews play an important role in academic research communities. By writing a review, you can contribute to scholarly discussion in your field and develop your analytical skills for evaluating academic work. There is no single correct way to write a book review; however, strong book reviews tend to have some common elements, such as an introduction, a concise summary, a thoughtful evaluation, and a conclusion. Below are some suggestions and questions to consider when writing the review. Introduction - Contextualize the book. What is the larger issue or question that the book addresses? What is the academic conversation that the book is joining? - Who is the author? (their research background) - What is the author’s central argument? - What is the book’s purpose? What does it set out to achieve? - Who is the intended audience? - What is your overall evaluation of the work? (see the Critical Evaluation section below) Summary of the Content Give the reader a synopsis of the main points of the book (the big picture). Many writers organize their summary by following the order of chapters or sections in the book (e.g., cover one chapter per paragraph). Some questions to address: - How is the book organized to support the author’s thesis/purpose? How are the chapters/sections ordered? Chronologically? Thematically? - What are the key points covered in each chapter? Critical Evaluation When evaluating the book, "be critical but civil" (Tobin, 2003). Highlight both the key strengths and shortcomings of the work. Support the claims you make with specific evidence from the text. Some possible questions to consider: - How effectively were the key arguments presented? To what extent do they help the reader understand the topic? - Does the book do what the author claims it will do? What were the author’s objectives, and to what extent did they achieve them?
