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.
The book is easy to read and provides some useful information about memory, like the kinds of memory, the brain structures that process memories, and how memories are made and not made.
