Expect honest reviews. I will let you know what I love and what I don’t like. This is not meant as an attack on the
Author, just my opinion on the quality of work that was sent to me. So, please do not send me any hate mail.

Self-Published Books

I do not accept self-published books at this point. I do however purchase self-published books from time to time, and
will write a review on those purchased by me, or recommend to me by friends and family.
Rating Scale

I use the traditional 5 Star rating scale. This means practically the following:

5 Stars: Wow this book is awesome! I could not put the book down. Very impressed!
4 Stars: A great book that kept me entertained/informed, and was a solid read. Nicely done!
3 Stars: I liked the book overall, but there are some things I had a problem with.
2 Stars: There are more negative issues, and than positive aspects to talk about with this book. I did not enjoy this book.
1 Star: I could not finish reading the book. Either it was factually wrong, off topic, or boring. This was
too frustrating of an experience to force myself to read through the whole thing. Disappointing.
