Requests for books should be made by filling out this form. Only those books still available for review appear on the form. Some of these books may only be available as e-books due to the COVID-19 crisis, and volunteers should be willing to review e-books (usually in the form of PDFs).

Volunteers are expected to have received their PhDs. Graduate students writing theses will be considered if nominated (separately, by email to by a supervisor who agrees in advance to read and approve the review before submission. Graduate students must inform us when submitting their reviews that they have received approval.
