Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if they don’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.

When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review by Midwest Book Review:

To be a champion is the goal of anyone who seeks a sport seriously. “The High-Tech Gooseneck Putter” is a children’s book. It is a story of Sami DeMani,   a golfing gander whose his career ruined when his luck goes over. But with the help of technology, Sami might very well be able to play again. The authors present a story of perseverance and tenacity in the face of ill fortune. “The High-Tech Gooseneck Putter” is worth considering for reading for any golf lover and their children.
