To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t 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 will start by saying I love Michael McIntyre and I can see this book has some fabulous reviews. That’s great. For me, however, it felt more factual than entertaining. It is interesting to learn how he reached the success he enjoys today but I missed the laugh out loud moments. All the jokes he referenced I already knew - so those didn’t make me laugh again (they did a lot the first few times after hearing them). I suppose I expected this to be funnier than it was. I didn’t find it a “cannot put this down” book but I still enjoyed finding out more about his journey.
