FTC guidelines for book reviews

1. Disclosure of Relationship

  • Free Products: If a reviewer received a book for free or at a discounted price in exchange for a review, this must be clearly disclosed.
  • Financial or Personal Relationships: Any financial or personal relationship between the reviewer and the author, publisher, or marketer must be disclosed. This includes if the reviewer is paid for the review or if there’s a personal relationship that could affect the impartiality of the review.

2. Honesty and Authenticity

  • Genuine Experience: Reviewers should only endorse a book they have actually read and their reviews should reflect their honest opinions, findings, beliefs, or experiences with the book.
  • No Scripted Opinions: Reviewers should not make statements about the book that are prescribed by the author or publisher. Their review should be their own words and genuine opinion.

3. Clear and Conspicuous Disclosure

  • Visibility of Disclosure: The disclosure should be clear and prominent, not hidden in footnotes or links. It should be placed close to the endorsement/review itself.
  • Language of Disclosure: The disclosure should be in plain language that is easily understood by the intended audience. Phrases like “I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review” are recommended.

4. Social Media Reviews

  • Applicability to Social Media: These rules also apply to reviews posted on social media platforms. If space is limited (e.g., Twitter), using hashtags like #sponsored or #ad can be an appropriate way to disclose.

5. Responsibility of Authors and Publishers

  • Obligations for Authors/Publishers: If you are an author or publisher sending out books for review, it’s important to inform reviewers of the need to disclose the free product in their review. However, the ultimate responsibility for disclosure lies with the reviewer.

6. Consequences of Non-Compliance

  • Legal Implications: Failure to comply with these guidelines can result in legal actions by the FTC, including fines. The FTC regularly monitors and enforces these guidelines.
