About My Book Reviews
I do book reviews a little differently. I don’t focus on whether I like a book or not. I focus on how you can use it. I look for books that make you think or make you feel and that you can use in some way, in work or in life.
My book reviews are more like movie trailers. I share clips and favorite scenes from the book so you can judge whether you like the book or not.
In each book review, I provide a quick overview of the book, including what you can get out of the book, the chapters at a glance, and key features. Where relevant, I share background on the author.
And, I finish with a small set of my favorite highlights from the book, that help give an overall impression of the book, and the author’s style.
