How I Rate Books

When rating books I follow the following criteria:

1. How is the book organized and set up? (User-friendliness)

       A. Does the book have a logical organization?

       B. Do the chapter titles tell what the content is about?

       C. Does the language and vocabulary match the intended audience?

2. Why was the book written and did it live up to its reason? (Purpose)

       A. Why does the book exist?

       B. Does the author have a clearly stated thesis?

       C. Did the author stick to purpose and thesis throughout the book?

3. What kind of content is presented? (Substance)

       A. Was the content interesting?

       B. Was the content accurate?

       C. Was the content given in moderation?

4. What kind of emotions/thoughts are provoked? (Sensation)

       A. Did the author try to connect with his/her audience?

       B. Did the author challenge the reader or the reader’s perception of the subject?

       C. Is it clear the author is passionate about the subject?

5. Does this present a new concept or does it present an old concept in a new way? (Originality)

      A. Is the book original?

      B. Is the book a new way of saying an old idea?

      C. Could the book lead to a revolution in thinking and practice?

From these concepts, I decide on whether the book was worth the money or not.
