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.
Overton writes about things that matter, that are in themselves interesting, and he provides characters to match. I learned a lot about carbon dioxide and sequestrations, but I cared more about two of the characters. Overton is one of my favorite authors.
