One of the major activities of academics is reviewing colleagues' manuscripts, yet no formal training on how to put together a meaningful review is usually provided by Ph.D. programs or professional associations. Winning Reviews brings together highly-respected scholars to discuss the fundamental nuts and bolts of writing a review. Insights are offered by leading journal editors and the vital role that reviews play in the knowledge creation process is examined. The book provides a comprehensive and much-needed guide to evaluating and reviewing scholarly writing.
It's been a year since their last outing. Brian, Ethel and Father Frederick are back with more village idiocy. Frederick has injured his nipples in a vicious moped accident whilst on his honeymoon and no longer feels like a man. He's taken up the drink again and is making people's lives a misery with his antics again. He can't work out why strange men keep following him while he's out drink-driving, though. Brian's concentrating on getting through married life while trying to find a hobby that doesn't hurt. His cousin Jeff (from The Office Idiot Reviews) has moved in for the summer and is on hand to help Brian with his assertiveness when he is bullied by the local biker, Jock. Ethel has discovered that it was Denny who made her shopping trolley explode last year and with Denny now an adult and living outside the safety of the children's home, it won't be long before she exacts the revenge she's been after. Meanwhile a battle for power is taking place at the manor house. Lord Monty, who ordered his title from the Internet, is in a battle of wills with his gamekeeper, Chopper. It's a never ending struggle which, time after time, leaves Monty either out of pocket, in pain or soaking wet. Written entirely in the form of product reviews, we guarantee you've never read a book quite like this before. (Unless you read the first one.) Hilarious and wholly original, More Village Idiot Reviews introduces the most bonkers set of countryside dwellers you've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
