Bill Dahl – Literature Review Bio:

I read EVERY word on EVERY page of the books I review. I read around a hundred books a year. Most of my reviews are here at http://www.BillDahl.net and on Amazon. Bill has a policy of not publishing reviews of books he reads that he doesn’t particularly care for – and is uncomfortable recommending to others ( “Literature is like ice cream….there’s a whole bunch of flavors and I have my own tastes that differ from others…some people adore chocolate while others prefer pecan nut”).

Bill reviews pre-publication manuscripts, and early release books for a variety of publishers and authors in the U.S. and abroad. He works with publicity departments of major publishers, literary PR firms and at the request of certain authors. He performs this service gratis, without any compensation whatsoever (he knows….he’s really stupid — and kind).

Notable authors whose work Bill has reviewed include Timothy Egan, Michael Lewis, Karl Marlantes, William P. (Paul) Young, Samantha Power, David Brooks, Stanley Karnow, Daniel Kahneman, Jeffrey Sachs, Parker Palmer, George Akerlof and Robert Shiller, Andrew W. Lo, Jessica M. Lepler, Stephen L. Carter, Andrew Ross-Sorkin, Nick Jans, Barbara Tuchman, Marisa Lankester, Thomas Peele, James Simon, Bart D. Ehrman, Peter Stark, John Wasik, David Grann, Jesse Eisinger, Mark Bowden, Roger Lowenstein, Gretchen Morgenson, Taylor Branch, Brian McLaren, Irshad Manji, Eboo Patel, Christopher Knowlton, Daniel Pink – and a myriad of others.

His current literary interests (2017/2018) include the non-fiction genres of  U.S. History, economic crises, perception and cognition, and cultural transmission. If you have an early release/pre-release book you would like reviewed, Please email me at dahl no space bill at gmail dot com Thank You.

  1. Hi Bill, I read your excellent, insightful review of Chasing the Flame on Amazon, and had a book I thought you might be interested in and I’d like to send it to you for a possible review. Thanks, Chris
