  • They should be written in good British English.
  • Reviewers will have 3 weeks to write their review from the date they receive their digital copy of the book
  • Suggested topics to cover might be:

> Usefulness for course revision
> Stage of vet school most suitable for
> Breadth of topics covered within the specialty addressed by the book
> Readability
