Book reviews should provide a concise summary of the book content, and, most importantly, offer a critical assessment of the content. Book reviews should provide the reviewer's analysis of books that are relevant to the practice and theory of CALL. A book review needs to be an evaluation, not just a summary; in addition to a (short) summary and key points, it should provide an appraisal of the books' strengths and weaknesses. Does this reviewer have any critiques of the book, or suggestions on how it could be improved upon? Does it lack in any way, or have any shortcomings? Book review readers expect to hear both the pros and the cons of a book so they know that the review is unbiased and so they feel prepared to determine whether to invest in the book themselves.
