Each student will write 5-7 page critical book reviews of the Vickers and
Tennant texts. Instructions are as follows: Critical summaries should be no less than 5
and no more than 7 pages (typed, double-spaced). No cover pages. Simply put your
first and last name at the top and the title of the volume you will be summarizing. The
next line should be the beginning of your critical summary. Critical summaries should
provide a narrative overview of the whole of the book. Provide summaries of each
chapter rather than focusing your summary on one or two chapters of the book. Do not
use lengthy quotations from the book. No other sources should be consulted or
referenced. In a concluding paragraph or two, indicate what, if anything, you found
most helpful in the reading
