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 analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
"American Revolution For Dummies" by Steve Wiegand was a surprisingly quick and enjoyable read. The author made the topics feel more 'contemporary' because of the straightforward writing style. The pacing is really well done. The interweaving of the more famous highlights with the lesser known details was also well done. It is a streamlined narrative but that helps keep the attention. On a side note, I really enjoyed the word-play that popped up here and there. There is a lot that I had forgotten about the American Revolution so this read felt fresh and timely. I'm glad that I decided to give it a look.
