Anyone can give a recommendation or make a list of what they deem as the "best." However, it's one thing to get a recommendation; it's another to get one from someone you trust. In fact, that's the whole point of this website: to provide credible recommendations to you from folks that both read and write sports books for a living.
We'd be foolish to say there aren't other great recommendation sites out there. Below are 6 places that we've found valuable if you're looking for ideas, recommendations, and reviews.

It also has a feature called "shelves" where you can categorize the books you've read and want to read, and the site will suggest similar books based on your preferences.
