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.
This HBR Guide is the first I have ever bought. It's a good fundamental book to read but it is very limited in details. It touches briefly on a lot of very important topic...enough for you to want to search out additional information. Like my rating suggested, "it's okay."
