There’s arithmetic, and there’s Amazon arithmetic

At the time of writing, Way Beyond A Lie has 85 reviews. Eighty-four of them are 4-star or 5-star, the other one is a 3-star review. According to the percentages Amazon displays against each star level, 3% of my reviews are 3-star. Yes, one out of 85 equals 3%. 

It’s all down to the fact these stats are not calculated using simple arithmetic. That, and the 3-star reviewer has posted millions of reviews so in Amazon world, he has a lot of clout. Just so you know.
