Book Review Volunteers Needed!
Who doesn't love free books? We are looking for volunteers to review current ITSM-related books
in the context of practical resources to fulfill real-world business
needs. A review should be no longer than a single page and should "leap
off the page.”
IT Governance will supply books at no cost to you for review. Once a book has been received by the reviewer, it would be expected that a review would be submitted to itSMF USA within two months for inclusion within a newsletter.
Questions that will prompt the reviewer for ideas of what to cover in their review:
- The key question: "Will the book work for the readership in the way intended?”
- Is the title appropriate, or could it be improved?
- Is theory kept to manageable levels, such that a non-expert can understand?
- Does the book seem comprehensive, or are there some obvious omissions?
- Should any other resources (books, web links, etc.) be referenced?
- What do you see as the market(s) for the book?
We appreciate as much additional opinion as you are able to give. Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to review publications.priSM CPDs are available for your published reviews! Check out the Book Review Page.
