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.
To be fair the book is aimed at absolute beginners and it really goes no further than the very basics.I have played guitar for 35 years and started learning banjo recently. I found I outgrew this short book very quickly and in hind sight should have probably chosen a more substantial volume.
