In my opinion, any professionally written collection of poetry should have an introduction, preface, biographical notes, etc. This is a sign of professionalism; it should be not deterring by any means. By your review, the poems in this books seem like worth reading. Thank you very much for the interesting details.

I am a self published poet author. I love reading others poems. I like how in this review you showed correlations relating to the type of poems that one can find in this book. I personally think it is genius to include author name in the title of the book. What a way to get recognized and acknowledged!
This review makes me as a reader, want to read this for myself. Bravo!

I like that your review blended a discussion on the generic art form with the author's actual poetic pieces.

Although this poetry seems very well thought out and done well, it seems a bit manipulative in some of the ideas in which the author makes.. so if I had to rate it, I’d rate it as alright, but not the best I’ve seen.

Poetry with a wide range of themes is always impressive since it shows the ability of the poet to mould his words and thoughts according to a variety of subjects. Due to the variety, it also appeals to majority of the readers since they are able to relate to atleast one of the poems. I enjoyed reading your review and might give this one a read sometime.
