I think, maybe I didn't explain myself clearly. It is for exactly the reason above, that I feel a simple yes/no with a comment, is more valuable to a prospective reader, than a scaled rating system.

A comparative scale, would suggest that you have compared the two, or many books objectively and wholly, whareas,

"Recommend: Found a great recipe for a rub, that is fantastic- pg 35"

would be a fairer representation of the voters overall impression of the book and his/her investment in the book itself.

Just my Opinion.

I understand what you are saying, I just don't understand how you take what you say and make it into a form that you can quickly look at and see if it is worth reading more reviews to see if you would buy the book. Further, I feel that if a book has one great recipe in it, that there are probably more because it is a quality book.
