To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not 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.
This book is a bit dated. It contains lines that portray the rosy optimism of 20 years ago. Despite the fact that much of the book is not worth reading two decades after it was published, there are some interesting ideas in it. The book recommends restructuring the economy so that waste is taxed and problems are solved proactively. I still love the vision, but an updated version of the book should be written.
