Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’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:

The Mind of the Historian

Ali Parsa

Publisher: Outskirts Press

ISBN: 9781432769222

History is perhaps in the eye of the beholder. “The Mind of the Historian: Causation in Philosophy of History: A Case Study in Perso-Islamic Historiography” looks into the philosophy beyond history as Dr. Ali Parsa argues that much of history is tilted towards the views of the writer, pointing the causes into what the writer believes. Using the Middle East as a focus of his discussion, “The Mind of the Historian” offers many intriguing ideas on the nature of history, and is very much recommended reading.
