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.
Blanchard jackpotted with his One Minute Manager and has milked the concept to the ying yang. Back in the eighties the unlearned masses had no access to academic books and Blanchard filled the gap with his folksy style writing and cheesy anecdotal story telling.
