To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I purchased 4 copies of this book. A statement on the copyright page says that the recipes are exactly as they appear in the 1963 edition. This is misleading. I have a copy of the 1963 edition. I have found at least one recipe that has been changed. It was my favorite cookie recipe in the book. How could they do that? Rather than spend time comparing every single recipe in the book, I chose to return the books. I was planning on gifting my grandchildren with this book. Very sad.
