An accounting rule says “Do not assume unless otherwise stated.” True enough, this rule goes beyond the walls of accounting. In book publishing, there is an unspoken rule among readers which tells them to buy books only if they receive positive feedbacks from previous readers and most especially, from highly-respected book reviewers.
Let me emphasize that reviews should be from highly-respected book reviewers. A few authors, in their haste to translate their manuscripts into paperbacks, sometimes go for book review services that are not reliable. As a result, they still fail to market their book or worse, succumb into scams.
When we speak of highly-respected and reliable book review services, we think of an authoritative voice in the book industry, a company that has built its fame and reputation through quality work – the very descriptions attributed to Kirkus Book Review.
