Reviews Database

Here's a place for reviews by MITSFS members.

If you're a MITSFS member and you'd like to review a book, please do! Read a few of the other reviews to get a sense of the style (e.g. we're more interested in what sort of a book it is, rather than assigning it a good/bad rating). Although there's a preference for new books, it's fine to review older books, especially when it's an author that not everybody in the world reads. An interesting and well-explained opinion on any book, even one already reviewed, is always welcome. When you're done, email your review to
