A book review is not the same thing as a book report, which simply summarizes the content of a
book. When writing a review, you not only report the content of the book but, also deliver how the concepts and theories could be applied in law enforcement organizations.
Your review should have three goals: first to introduce the reader about the well summarized content of the book, second to extend the concepts and theories applied in law enforcement agencies, and third, to provide implications from your judgment of the content.
The descriptive element of your review should give readers an understanding of the author’s suggestions for being great. You should assume that the readers are law enforcement officers. What you have to perceive before the review is that the book is not about criminal justice. Again, one of your goals of this review is the suggestions of leadership and management methods which are ready to be applied in law enforcement agencies.
Please follow the guidelines below:
1. In the case you have in-text citations, provide an APA‐formatted reference at the end of the paper. You can consult Purdue University’s OWL site for information on proper APA citation guidelines.
2. Review should be single-spaced, 12-font, and the combined document should be approximately 2-3 pages in length.
3. Make sub-sections (e.g., introduction, leadership and management theories, conclusion, etc.)
4. Write in a narrative format, do not simply list.
This assignment will be graded according to content, organization, style, grammar, and a separate works cited/reference page. Just keep in mind that quality comes first, quantity is the next. Quoting, paraphrasing, or simply using ideas requires a citation. Plagiarism detection software will be used for grading. Behaviors of academic dishonest will be tolerated.
How you will be graded:
1. Book Information __/5 points
Lists the book’s title, author, publisher, and number of pages
2. Organization __/5 points
The review’s organization makes sense and aids the reader’s understanding of the content. The book review is divided into multiple paragraphs that summarize each main idea and give supporting evidence. Transitions between ideas are smooth, so that each sentence flows into the next.
3. Summary __/15 points
Accurately summarizes the main ideas and theories discussed in the book, as well as its organization. Gives the reader a feel for what the book is about and whether it might interest them.
4. How to apply contents of Good to Great __/20 points
Valid recommendations to law enforcement supervisors: Over-all, what you gain by reading this book? What do you think that law enforcement officers who read the book will gain? Express your ideas how the theories and concepts discussed could be applied in law enforcement agencies.
5. Formatting and Citations __/10 points
Book review is 2-3 pages, and pages are numbered and single spaced. The book is correctly cited in APA format at the end of the paper, along with any other sources that were used (you should have at least 2 other sources in addition to the book itself). For example, you may want to look up additional information about management in public organizations while writing your review, in which case you should cite that information. All sources should be cited at least once in the text as well as at the end of the paper. Your direct summary of the book should include quotations and page numbers cited at the ends of sentences or paragraphs (see more https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/in_text_citations_the_basics.html).
6. Spelling, Grammar, and Style __/5 points
Uses correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation. The writer’s style and voice remain consistent throughout the piece.
