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 was somewhat disappointed with the book. The pictures were very dated as were the recipes. If you are looking to find an older favorite that your mother or grandmother made you will probably find it in this book.
This is a Used book in AVERAGE condition and not "Used - Very Good" as claimed by the seller. What I disliked the most was that the seller specifically states that "[Writing:NONE]. 1. I was surprised to find a dedication, written in nice penmanship, on the cover over-leaf "To our dearest Jean...2004". This is a blantant misrepresentation that there is no writing on the book. It's obviously that "dearest Jean" did not preview the book or try any of the recipes. 2. The binding is cracked on the bottom third of the cover. 3. The front cover is also cracked and dented, with chocolate stains. 4. The inventory adhesive the seller put on the binding of the book was so stronge that I inadvertendly torn away some extra cover.
I would think twice before I buy from book_holders in the future.
