The relevant points, with overshadows of possible bias

Ok, it hopefully conveys the pertinent facts/points/ideas of the book. It is also quite apparent that the editors/reviewers (and author being reviewed) are biased. Understanding that, I felt that the book reviewed was insightful and made some good points. Since the editors/reviewers were so opinionated and biased, it makes me want to read the book. Why? Was this just the facts from the book with accurate analysis or were they tainted? Ok, no, I won’t read the book reviewed. I will just stick with this review. I was able to gain the insights of the book they reviewed and I WILL read their reviews of other books.
