Network Book Reviews

The editors of Network are interested in carrying reviews of the books listed below in the next edition.

Network invites all BSA members to pick a book from the list. Please contact Tony Trueman for the next deadline for reviews.

Guidelines for book reviewing can be found here. In some cases we can carry reviews of 600 words rather than 550.

To register an interest in reviewing, or for more information, please contact Tony Trueman on 07964 023392. We will then have a copy of the book sent to you.

Please note that it is essential to let us know of your interest before beginning reviewing.
