A review usually has between 900 and 1,500 words. Ideally, it should be both general enough to summarize the overall aim of a book and specific enough to identify the book’s particular contribution.
As such, the review should offer an informative account of the contents of the book, and a critical assessment of its strengths and weaknesses.
So far as eventual disagreement with the views of the book goes, the critique should of course be fact oriented. Moreover, it is always a good idea to write a critique in such a manner that the reviewer would feel unembarrassed to read it in front of an audience which includes the reviewed author.
The proposed time frame for submitting a review after receiving the review copy is of 4 months.
