7 months agoMaybe the reviewers/creators of these abstracts missed something.
This summary suggests this book is chalked full of useful advice, and practical too. No idea why it got such low marks.
But I will certainly consider buying this one.
7 months agoDear Mr. Paz, Thanks for your comment. An 8 in applicability is actually a pretty good score and we're are solid admirers of Mr. Maxwell's work. I think he emphasizes a warm, colloquial style and accessible tried-and-true counsel. Given that, we think the 7's are fair ratings (though quantifying any book in numbers is inherently imprecise) and we're very glad to be able to cover several of his books. We appreciate your feedback. E.Rauzin, Senior Managing Editor, getAbstract
