To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was really disappointed. I was looking for an objective analysis based on facts. This book is clearly not that. Starting things off with an almost comically transparent attempt to assure the reader of their credibility based on work done with the WSJ, the authors present a largely hearsay based, fictional, assumed, and projected narrative of what people may have and could have been doing. What?? In this world of high-stakes politics and intrigue, they had only too many people ready to give them accounts of the protagonists and their sagas. Just a gossip-filled page-turner. If you're out to malign these Saudis or just feed pre-conceived notions, then sure, go ahead and buy it. It won't disappoint you.
