Deming Clarifies

A very nice note from John regarding KB and the rating system -- a little excerpt below:

"As for the star rating, I've been meaning for some time to get up on the site a list of what our star rating system actually is; it's supposed to be very discriminating, anyway, kind of a one-to-Whitman thing. 10 stars, then, means an absolute classic; 7.5 means exemplary, among the few best books of the year; 5 stars means highly recommended, strong, promising work; 2.5 means not recommended; 0 of course means "stay as far away as possible.""

And after all, I did better than Mary Karr -- so thanks, John & Coldfront!
