The place to write, read and discuss book reviews!

 

Each month we will be offering two copies of a SAGE book for review. So keep an eye out for those posts, added to the Comments Wall, and let us know if you would like to review the book.


Book reviews should be a minimum 500 words, and should be completed within 2 months of receipt of the book. Books will be allocated to reviewers on a first come first served basis (
If a reviewer has reviews outstanding they will be asked to submit that review before receiving any further review copies).

 
If you would like to post a book review, please post it as a new discussion in the forum.

Mike and Ibrahim, I am happy to let you know that you are the lucky winners for March. If you could email me your addresses at lucia.sweet@sagepub.co.uk, so I can send you your copies.

Clive, I hope you don't mind we have skipped you this month, since you won February's offer as well!  Not to worry though, there are plenty of books to scoop up every month... and don't forget to post your last review on the wall.

MARCH’S BOOK FOR REVIEW

Spring has sprung, grass has riz and many interesting books have been published! What do you make of March’s offer?

This month we have two copies of Presenting Your Research  by Lucinda Becker available for review.

This handy guide tackles the obstacles to effective and successful presentations, considering the range of material which might be presented, the occasions which suit different types of material and the skills needed to present research in a way that is engaging and persuasive. As with the other titles in the Success in Research series, this guide takes a hands-on approach and includes checklists, top tips, exercises and examples to help you remember what you have read and put it immediately to work!

If you would like to review this book, just let me know via this wall (and I will get in touch to ask for your details). It’s first come first served, so the two copies will go to the first two members of the group to make a request.

 

Best,     

Lucia
