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've read plenty of non-fiction books and have never felt compelled to write a review. My version was for Kindle. To make a long story short, the author doesn't seem to have a story arc or know how to write a good book. I recognize that many non-fiction writers have issues with the concept. Maybe the study of complexity is that hard to explain. However, I have been delighted by Brian Greene explaining "The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory" and Neil Shubin's "Your Inner Fish". They do a great job explaining science to lay people. This is about the third time in my life that I've had to give up on a book. I read about 20 non-fiction books per year. I hope this helps you with your decision. All the best.
Even if it`s a great subject, filled with different fields to be explored, the background of the author (in computer science) keeps in your way. From the page 50 on the book is essentially about computer science. I only wish it was clear in the tittle... :o)
