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 publishers to do that and they obliged.
From Volume 3, Number 1, January - June 2002, we started reviews of certains books of paramount importance as "featured books". The first book to be featured on our journal was Ecotoxicology: The Study of Pollutants in Ecosystems by F. Moriarty (Published by Academic Press). Review of that book, as well as the combined index of reviews of all featured books can be accessed by clicking here.
In our last issue we published as many as six reviews in the featured books category (of these five were in the technical books section, and one in the popular books section. In this issue, we are continuing this trend.
This time we sent Dietary Supplements: Toxicology and Clinical Pharmacology edited by Melanie Johns Cupp and Timothy S. Tracy (Published by Humana Press), to three reviewers from two different continents. All of them are leading lights in their subjects and are widely respected all over the world. The first two reviewers were from India and USA, who read the book independently and then preferred to give a joint review. The third reviewer is from UK, who is a very respected forensic practitioner, and has a number of books to his credit. He is also the editor of a very widely read forensic medicine journal.
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
6: Slightly above average
8: Very Good
10: Truly Outstanding
Here are both the reviews - with ratings.
