Abstract

In this newsletter article, the authors discuss the possible reasons for the undervaluation of book reviews. Some of the valuable contributions of the book review process for the reviewers of books, for the consumers of those reviews, and for the vitality of I-O psychology as a profession are explored. It is noted that the reason the authors argue that book reviews are undervalued is that their important contributions are not fully appreciated. In particular, critical, well-informed reviews may establish broadly understood and accepted criteria for evaluating science and practice, which they believe to be important to the development of a profession and its members
