Roger Ebert Explains How To Review

Many of his rules apply only to movies, but those of us who cover books -- even sad bloggy wretches such as myself -- would do well to read and think about those guidelines.

Plus, as Gawker points out, many, many of his examples -- while also being true, apropos and entirely appropriate -- are daggers aimed directly at the heart of his TV replacement, Ben Lyons.

That's how a good critic does it.

There are apparently a lot of starving book critics in Boston; people are always selling us review copies.
