How to Navigate the Road to Building Reviews: A 'Go To' Handbook for All Authors by authors Allyson R. Abbott and Donna Wolz is an informative compilation and explanation of how to go about finding reviews, and what these particular businesses/websites/social media forums entail. The tone of the book is friendly, it's as though the authors are talking to you. How to Navigate the Road to Building Reviews comprises page after page of valuable information, there is no fluff to be seen for miles. The format is clear and easy to read and understand.
As an author myself, I fell head over heels in love with this book. It is definitely the Holy Grail of information for any author who is on the prowl for reviews of their book, or also any would-be writer who is thinking about starting to write a book and what goes into the process of garnering reviews. We live in a world where the advancement of technology and its policies and processes are cyclically changing, and this book will help you catch up to speed. There are hundreds of books out there that try to tell you that they are the be-all and the end-all of information that pertains to getting reviews. I have probably downloaded and bought them all, so I feel that I am safe in saying that this book is the best one I have ever been fortunate enough to come across. The only qualm I have is that, as amazing as this book is, I feel that it deserves a better cover to go along with it. Other than that, if you are a writer, or are wanting to become an author, grab this book. Trust me - you want it and you need it in your writing life.
