The reviews. How they work

The reviews on my site tell you something useful.

Maybe one useful thing.  Maybe more.

Sometimes I’ll review a book, or a movie, or a holiday destination, or a restaurant.  Other times I’ll review something really huge (one of my most popular reviews) or an artist’s complete works.

I won’t necessarily review the latest thing: I don’t see why a movie or artwork created a decade or a millennium ago should be any worse than one created yesterday accompanied by great hype.  It may even be better.

Each review will offer:

  • an insight, based on my personal opinion, tastes, experience and all-round worldly wisdom, to help you make your mind up on the subject of the review.  You don’t have to agree; in fact I’ll be delighted if you leave a comment disagreeing;
  • a rating out of 10;
  • a “For” and “Against” section.  If something is plain dull, I won’t be reviewing it.  It’s got to have good and, inevitably, bad points.  Even Hans Rosling.  Remember: I didn’t say you had to agree.

“Have fun and comment.”
