Descriptive review: presents the content and structure of a book as objectively as possible describing essential information about a book’s purpose and authority. This is done by stating the perceived aims and purposes of the study often incorporating passages quoted from the text that highlight key elements of the work. Additionally there may be some indication of the reading level and anticipated audience.

Critical review: describes and evaluates the book in relation to accepted literary and historical standards and supports this evaluation with evidence from the text and in most cases in contrast to and in comparison with the research of others. It should include a statement about what the author has tried to do evaluates how well [in your opinion] the author has succeeded in meeting the objectives of the study and presents evidence to support this assessment.
