Should you be a Manning reviewer? Here’s why I am

Manuscript reviewer

  • What does the book cover? The reviewers are encouraged to propose to add more topics or remove what they think is not relevant or important.
  • Is the book interesting?
  • Are the code examples relevant and accurate?
  • Are provided figures helpful and self-explanatory?
  • Very technical questions specific to each chapter
  • Everything else 😄… with one exception — the technical reviewer does NOT provide feedback on the grammar and writing style; it’s the editor's job.
