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.
I have followed the author on Instagram for quite some time and was excited to hear that she was publishing a book on beginning watercolor. While I bought the book as a Christmas gift for my oldest granddaughter, I can certainly say that the book looks amazing (as does the author’s own paintings). I may well end up getting a copy for myself!
