Hi,

It seems that on Amazon, no matter how good the book, one person doesn't like it.  It's when two people don't like it that I start looking more carefully.  (I don't actually buy too much from Amazon tech-book-wise, but it's a great way to keep track of books I'm interested in and to check out reviews.)
