DISCUSSION BOARD > More about the book reviews

When I started doing the book reviews I intended to only write reviews that readers of Disaster Preparedness Blog could benefit from. What I mean is that I would do reviews only on things I thought were higher quality with at least a 4 out of 5 stars.

So far I have kept this up, but I also feel that it may not look right to have nothing but high reviews. I also received a book that I was surprised bu, and would give it a poor review and decided not to put this up on the site.

What I would like to know is, do you think I should put up the reviews that are not that great as well? What are your thoughts?

Inherent in the notion of a book review is the subjective appraisal of content quality. If you post a review of a book that is what you deem to be 'low quality', at least you'll be doing blog followers a service by steering them away. If it so happens followers disagree with you, this makes for that much more lively of a thread.

Thank you for the input Casey. Look for more reviews coming by the end of May.

I suggest you review the SAS Survival Handbook. I'll be honest it is dry reading but the information is invaluable. You should never leave home without it. I am a very capable hunter and fisherman but still have ended up eating a can of beef stew out of a can at night because I came up empty. A few days of that and you will be breaking out this book in a hurry. This book is a part of a long term survival strategy. Most disasters are over in just a couple days but you never know.

I hope this helps

I think, people do not know about natural disasters and not aware of what is happening in the world, much damage and many victims...
