Providing readers with ratings is a hard thing to do. There are so many factors you can take into account – editing, language, style, comprehensives. You have to check how well book fits into most recent trends (especially nowadays, when each and every year new release of something appears on the market). Even though it’s hard to be fair using five scale score I prepared “guide to ratings” – trying to explain the scale itself. If you see particular grade next to the book, you can take a look here so you can tell what I have meant by giving the book/video material a particular score. Hope this helps.

This is really, really good stuff – “perfect”

If I have given five starts it means that:
– book was comprehensive, well written, well edited,
– video material was comprehensive, well edited and well directed.

Go for it!

Good stuff. It’s almost “perfect”

If I have given four starts it means that:
– book was comprehensive, well written, well edited, but it has minor flaws like editorial issues, minor text errors, etc.
– video material was comprehensive, well edited and well directed, but it has minor flaws like editorial issues, sound quality related issues, content related issues.

Go for it, but you will probably spot these small flaws.

This is OK, but don’t expect to be enlightened.

If I have given three starts it means that:
– book was quite comprehensive, there are small issues related to the style, editorial side has some flaws
– video has some issues related to content, there are issues related to video quality as well

You can buy this book/video material, but be warned that you won’t be fully satisfied. It doesn’t mean that material has no value. It simply means: if you like to surround yourself with things close to perfection, this is not for you.

Sounds like a terrible stuff!

– book – book has some content related flaws, it is target to wrong audience, there are major editorial issues
– video – video is badly edited, has major sound/video flaws, it targets wrong audience and you turn it off after few minutes of watching

Run for your lives!

– book – haven’t found one yet
– video – haven’t found one yet

This is so terrible I refuse to write _any_ review

– book – haven’t found one yet
– video – haven’t found one yet
