The Art of Writing Reviews
Considering how many reviews are written each day - for newspapers, magazines, broadcast outlets, and, overwhelmingly, for the Internet - there is remarkably little written about the art of writing reviews itself. This book considers the differences between reviews and criticism, and looks at the fundamental tasks of the reviewer: experiencing, describing, and evaluating. It examines some of the major problems, misconceptions, and bad habits involved in creating reviews, and discusses the structure of the review itself. Finally, by placing reviewing in a larger context, the book becomes an exploration of the nature of art itself, and of our place in it.
