The Crucial Advantage Professional Book Reviews Have Over Blogs
"Such a review will usually run somewhere between 500 and 1,500 words. Before publication, it will be subjected to a prolonged and intense process of subediting. Crucially, it will be signed, and usually paid for. ... None of this guarantees that such a review will not be savage, destructive, ad hominem or partisan, but it will be considered".
