My name:  Brian Martin

Rating Scale

The following explains my rating system, which is a 6-star system, modified for the 5-star maximum allowed.

 

5 = Must Read
4 = Well Worth Your Time
3 = Better Than Most
2.5 = Of Some Value
2 = Take It or Leave It
1 = Valueless

Or, put another way:

5 = You Gotta Read It
4 = I Highly Recommend It
3 = It's Good…Not Great
2.5 = Not That Great, But Has Some Good Parts
2 = Not Really My Thing, But If That's What You Like…
1 = It's Worthless, Man

Or, to use a simple grading system:

5 = A+
4 = A
3 = B
2.5 = C
2 = D
1 = F
