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.
Had to read as a requirement for American History course, but if I had a choice I would NOT pick this book. It jumps around a lot through time periods in one chapter which makes it a bit confusing There are no questions at the end of the chapters to help ensure you know what you read. In my opinion it is a horribly made text book.
