I've always enjoyed books, and find them much easier to digest than page upon page of on-line material.  I've been writing book and conference reviews for many years, offering peer review in the alternative knowledge field.  My book reviews are set firmly upon two main pillars:  Firstly, I actually read the book. Secondly. I present an honest evaluation of the book, based purely on my opinion of its relative merits, or shortcomings.  I also highlight information in the book that ties in with my own research interests.

I hope that these reviews are also thought-provoking articles in their own right, enabling the reader to get a quick insight into the subject in question.  Where possible, I create links to Amazon for you to easily find your chosen book on-line (as well as Kindle) and keep an eye out for the best prices. 

I have divided the reviews listed here into sections by subject.   Alternatively, you can search by author or title by clicking through the link below.  Enjoy your reading!

Some correspondence about my book reviews:

"I read many of your reviews, in particular those abut Ufology etc and enjoyed them all. I found your reviews fair without being condescending.  They retain a reservation but not an ignorance of the subjects nor the conclusions, as such they were both informative and enjoyable to read.  I am about to move on to read your own volumes and look forward to it.  Please keep  up the good work.  With thanks"    Charles
