Review of Radiology, first edition
Sumer Sethi's Best selling book. Second edition (top) has sold more than 10,000 copies. The first edition (bottom) sold out completely in less than a year!

We keep receiving books for review from various publishers. However some books are of such paramount importance that we at the journal office thought one review may not be able to do justice to that book. One opinion may be slanted, perhaps by the individual tastes and preferences of the reviewer. Reviewers from different continents, nations, even different parts of the same nation may perceive a book differently. Why not send books to two or more different reviewers and get their opinion. We requested several authors/publishers to do that and they gladly obliged.

In our sister publication "Anil Aggrawal's Internet Journal of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology", we have been featuring books for quite some time now. However in THIS journal, we started featuring books (reviews from multiple experts) only from Vol. 1, No. 2 (July - December 2002). We hope to continue featuring books in our subsequent editions.

 Taking the lead from our sister publication, from the second issue of this journal (Volume 1, Number 2, July - December 2002), we started reviews of certain books of paramount importance as "featured books". The first book to be featured on our journal was The Second Highest World War - The Rama Theatre by Anoop Chandola (Published by Authors Choice Press, an imprint of iUniverse, Inc.), which was published in our last issue. If readers' reactions, and emails are any indication, this feature was a tremendous success.

 One of the most important books to hit the literary scene in recent times is Review of Radiology written by Sumer K. Sethi. Dr. Sumer came out with the first edition last year, and just in one year all copies were lapped up by radiology students around the world.

 So important has this book been, that it has been recommended by most professors of radiology to their students. Although the book would be useful to all radiologists in practice, it is particularly helpful to students appearing for the MD/MS entrance examinations.

 A book with such a mass appeal ought to be examined by more than one reviewer. We at the journal office sent the book to eight reviewers around the world spanning three continents and six countries. The reviewers were not only requested to send us detailed reviews, but were asked to rate this book on a scale of ten. The following rating scale was provided to the reviewers.

0: Waste of time
1: Of minimal interest
2: Of little interest
3: Of some interest
4: Slightly below average
5: Average
6: Slightly above average
7: Good
8: Very Good
9: Excellent
10: Truly Outstanding

 By and large, our reviewers rated the book above 8. Here is a detailed break-up of our reviewers and the ratings they gave this book.
