I have recently been asked by several authors to review books that they have written on various aspects of the college admissions process. I will be posting my first review early next week but before doing so I wanted to provide you great readers of this blog with my general position on book reviews.
There are hundreds of book out there that discuss some aspect of the college admissions process and over the years I have read many of them. As might be expected, some are great, some are alright and some are downright awful. For my readers benefit, in the future I will be reviewing some of the books that I think are the best out there.
I will also be reviewing books that I am asked to review by an author or publisher. Generally, I will only do a review if, after reading the book, I feel that the book has information that would be useful to the readers of this blog and is one that I would recommend.
If I am sent a complimentary copy of a book I will note that in the review but other than that, I do not take any compensation from authors or publishers to review their books. If I say I like a book it is because I truly do.
