How long is the book? How long did it take you to read? What chapters are included? What information is included in the chapters? Do you feel like the chapters are complete in the information they give or do you feel like more information would have helped the chapter? Is the book interesting to read or were you bored? What about the cover of the book - would it be suitable for public reading or just in the house? Do you feel like you learned something from the book? Who, specifically, was this book most useful for? Is it for beginners or advanced people on the skill topic? (Never touched a g-spot vrs easily can female ejaculate.)

Depending on the type of book (sex position books, books with specific features shown over and over):
What special features are included in the book? How do they add to overall scheme of the book? How do they help the reader? Did you find them helpful or were they just there to take up space?

For the most part, checking out some of the other "Extremely Useful" book reviews will help out quite a bit if you need some inspiration for a book review.

I prefer something which isn't a play-by-play of the chapters. List a few good ones, a few which you didn't like so much (if that applies). Talk about the content as well as the style. Maybe everything's included but it's dry or it's written in a conversational tone but lacks information. Why should we trust the authority of the writer?

General info, author background and other works of theirs. Info about story that interested you without giving away story. Tell them about the buffet. But, not all the dishes and spices. Just a thought. Also. List some subjects that you feel could spin off of the book that lead to further discussion and interest. Say the story takes place near a rocky California coast. Talk about the ocean, the smells, sounds. Be descriptive. I love to read different spins on how something is viewed or imagined.

The book is Daily Sex and it has 365 positions. I have an idea of what I can do now. Thank you all so much.

I am a wanna be writer. Short stories, research and a few books. My father was extremely well published. Books, articles, magazines ..ect.
First thing is a general description, perspective and enlightenment about the story. You don't want to tell the story. You want to tell what you derived, learned and got out of it. So your review helps someone decide to read it or not. And, that your support will assist but not make their decision and a valuable association to which readers and writers will value You. Not just your opinion or Perspective. Good Luck. I think you are of to a great start, because you opened yourself up, like a good book and I would want more. That is the sale; in Revue's.
