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.
If you have the original books from which this compilation is made, then the Indispensable, is not so indispensable at all...As it happens we have them ant the book left my son rather forlorn. In itself it is as great as any Calvin and Hobbes books, great fun for children and adults alike.
A potential buyer wasn't informed that this used book had a crack across the front cover, a long inscription from the original giver to the receiver inside, and had about eleven pages turned over ("dog's ears"). This should have been made clear in the description of the book's condition. Had I known this, I would not have ordered it. Will not buy from this seller again.
