Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book I bought, Boatowners Mechanical and Electrical Manual 4th Edition is the number one book in its field for doing repairs on boats. I've owned 2nd edition for years and I've met the author, who is excellent at both his understanding of the material, often highly technical, and at his presenting and passing on his expertise to others. The book gets a 5 star rating. However, the B and N website does not get a 5 star rating. I have trouble with it every single time I try to buy a book on line. I always end up on the phone, trying to get help with the trouble. Some times I miss something in what I consider to be one of the most customer-unfriendly websites for buying something. And sometimes the site just doesn't work as it should, no matter how I work at it. I wish that web designers could experience it from the customer's point of view. They so clearly don't. If I didn't hate Amazon enormously, as they grow to dominate the world of selling stuff, I'd have long since been driven to them by B and N's incompetence. Even giving this review wasn't easy. Dr. M
