Why are book reviews useful?

Scholarly book reviews:

- provide alternative interpretations
- alert us to errors (we aren’t necessarily experts, the reviewers are)
- enable us to understand the thrust of what a writer is saying
- give us insight into where the writer is placed in the world of scholarship.
