Customer Reviews, including Product Star Ratings help customers to learn more about the product and decide whether it is the right product for them.
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 analyzed reviews to verify trustworthiness.
An Explorers Notebook is a fun read for real Tim Flannery fans, but in my opinion, not his best work for the initiate - better to start with Chasing Kangaroos or the Eternal Frontier. It's pretty detail heavy and misses the overarching narrative that much of his work manages to retain despite ranging over a broad range of subjects. I wouldn't want people to be turned off of reading this type of science book because this one seems a little overly technical!
