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.
We were very disappointed in this book, albeit for a rather narrow issue. Specifically, according to a review we had read in our local newspaper, we were led to believe that the book contained the fried chicken recipes from Willie Mae's Scotch House in New Orleans. The book did not contain the recipes. Although the misleading newspaper article may not have been the author's fault, the book was still a disappointment.
