How To Understand If A Review Is Worth Reading Without Wasting 1 Minute
Obviously there are other sites and sources in which you can find book reviews but I listed only those who were worth checking.
However, sometimes happens that it's difficult to find a good and reliable review.
How can you discern those who are good and those who aren't?
- Check the domain's name: yes you understood well, check the url of the website you're reading. If it's something like nameofthebook-review.com then be careful as it might be a site which purpose is only to sell this book.
- See the tone and the language that is being used: be particularly cautious for the extremes in this field. What do I mean for extremes? If a review uses a particularly researched vocabulary or if the tone is a very detached one it might be a shallow review; obviously the same applies for the contrary.
- The more users can post their review on a particular book, the more the source is reliable.
Even if you can find very good reviews thanks to the sites that I posted above don't be too conditioned from them. Sometimes it is better to read the ebook or the book right away even if the reviews are not so good as they always have something to teach us.
