Book Ratings from Scism

10: Excellent, at the top of its category. This book has impacted me deeply, challenged me profoundly, or has simply been a pure delight to read
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others
7: Good book, but it didn't grab me in a big way
6: Decent, but not my type of book
5: Maybe somebody else would like this. I didn't
4: Only OK. Barely worth reading. The line between taking it and leaving it is very thin
2-3: Has major problems. I don't recommend it
1: It's hard to imagine anyone liking this book
