The rating is based on the quality of the eBook, not the content. The ebook appears to be the result of a scan of a printout of an OCR'd text. In other words, the text isn't sharp AND there are a large number of odd errors that appear to be the result of bad character recognition. A very odd combination of problems. Still, if you want the book, the text is mostly readable -- but definitely check out the sample before purchasing.
