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.
Keep in mind that this is a classic encyclopedia style culinary reference book - you need to know why you are buying it. Well put together, it will also make a great gift to any foodie/home cook who takes his stuff seriously.
Great book everything you need, I'm a student and this is perfect for my studies i use it regularly, the only problem i have with the book is that on some of the pages the text has been double printed so it is pretty hard to read but its not a big problem and it is not the fault of the author but the printers, but as i said not a big problem as i have not sent it back for a new book.
