Andy Lloyd's Book Reviews

 

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 rare 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 prove to be thought-provoking articles in their own right, enabling the reader to get a concise yet deep insight into the subject in question.


A testimonial about these 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


Where possible, I have provided Amazon links to easily locate your chosen book on-line. 

I have divided the reviews listed here into sections by subject (then by title).  Or you can search by author by clicking through the link at the bottom of the page. 

 

Enjoy your reading!
