One response to “Why Amazon Reviews Aren’t As Meaningful As We’d Like to Think

  1. It bothers me that authors are involved in practices like positive review swaps. I don’t do a lot of reviews (mostly because my reviews stink) and I don’t believe I’ve ever agreed to even an honest review swap, simply because the pressure of having to ‘like’ the book taints the reading experience. I rate a lot of books and I talk the heck out of the ones I like. Plus I think readers can tell a genuine review from a forced or downright fabricated one.

    Thanks for sharing this with us, Eric.
