What Does The Review Include?

We read your book (yes, we actually read it). We then write a detailed review on it that covers aspects include,

  • How easy it is to understand
  • How useful the information was
  • How unique the information was
  • How thorough the book was
  • Value for money

Your review will be displayed on a full page for itself on our website!

We send you the review before we post it here on our site to get your approval. If you don’t want us to post our review, then we won’t – you can base your decision on our review after you’ve read it.

You are free then to use our review on any of your sites or social media as an endorsement. We stand by our reviews!

Note, the above is included in the price of reviewing your book. If we especially liked your book, we will tweet about it, BUT, tweeting is not part of the review package because we reserve the right to tweet about what we wish, and have our tweets impartial! Our followers have grown accustom to us being impartial, and you can appreciate that we don’t want to let them down.

What Do We Need From You?

All we need from you is your book, whether that’s in a pdf form, or a link to somewhere we can read it! It’s really easy!

How Long Will It Take To Review?

Between one and two weeks.

How Much Does It Cost?

It depends on the length of the book.

An Example

100 Days Of PhD, 100 Tips

Overall, we found this book great! It was highly informative about the PhD process and had more useful tips than we could count (we did count them just for fun and we found there were actually 101 tips, so one extra!).

The book started off with an overview of what the PhD process looks like and what you need to do during a PhD. That set the book up to make the tips highly effective.

From there, the author then presented each tip and explained them in detail.

The tips were incredibly helpful. They ranged from everyday tips, like how to organize your workload to get it done, to specific tips, like how to prepare for your Viva/Defense.

One of the things that stood out from the book is the uniqueness of the tips it presented. There were many that we hadn’t heard before and wished we knew earlier.

We recommend this book for every PhD student just starting, as well as those who are a few years in. Even those in their final months will benefit from it to some extent.

It’s well worth the small investment.
