ALL REVIEW PAPERS are to be 7-10 pages (not including cover page), typed and doublespaced.
The Content and/or Body of the review paper:
“Review” means that you understand the Author’s premise for writing the book and
will now summarize and critique in your own words what you understand the Author
communicated. The first several paragraphs will state: the introduction to the author and
why they are qualified to write on the subject, the thesis and relevant main points made in
the book with commentary on each of the main relevant points. The body of the Book
Review will consist of answering the following questions:
• Did the author clearly communicate his premise for writing the book? Where, and
How?
• Did the author prove his premise? Where and How?
• Was there evidence of proof that helped you to believe that the author was
thorough in research? If not, what areas do you see that needed to be covered?
Use examples.
• Was the author able to expose you to new truths or cause you to rethink some
conclusions that you had previously drawn? If yes, how? If not, why?
• What controversial statements were made by the author? Why were these
statements controversial?
Note: You can best accomplish this by taking brief notes or underlining provocative
statements in your book as you read.
Writing your Conclusion:
• Would you recommend this book to others and why?
• Would you not recommend this book to others and why?
• Was the book an aid to your understanding of the class content?
Please Note
• Your writing is expected to show good critical thinking skills. A Book Review differs
from a Book Report. A Review critically evaluates the content of the book to
determine if it complies with the thesis of the book. A Report is designed only to
show that the reader can articulate the content.The Cover Page will be formatted as follows for all papers

b) All paragraphs are to be indented 5-7 spaces.
c) Margins: 1-inch margin on all sides of the paper. Pages are to be numbered
