The ESC frequently receives unsolicited books for review. Reviews are published in the Bulletin, and reviewers keep the book.

If you wish to review one of the books listed below, please send an email to the Chair of the Publications Committee. You should indicate your qualifications to review the topic of the book, and be able to complete your review within 8 weeks.

Preference will be given to ESC members.

Guidelines:
Book reviews should be approximately 800-1200 words in length. They should clearly identify the topic of the book and how well the book meets its stated objective. Weaknesses and strengths of the book should be described.

Formatting of the review should follow that of reviews in recent issues of the Bulletin.
