4 Stars


This book puts in one place all that the author needs to know about book reviewing and the logistics behind it. Some aspects of the book reviewing phase that may be confusing, especially for beginning authors unaware of how to navigate the waters, are demystified and laid out in simple steps that they can follow. This is not to say that the work of lifting a book up for the world to see is suddenly made easy by using this book. It simply means that the path toward success in the book reviewing phase is made much clearer.

Wogahn not only explains the book reviewing process, he also offers some great resources and information that take years of experience to gather. This book is a beginning (and also veteran, if you’ve never handled this process yourself) author’s dream. A lovely addition to any authorpreneur’s collection.

*Though I offer this review to the public, it is my opinion and simply that. A ‘thank you’ to the author, David Wogahn, for a free copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
