Say what you will about online shopping behemoth Amazon.com. In my humble opinion, the best thing about the whole site is the reviews. Sometimes they actually help me decide whether or not to purchase a product that I can’t see with my own eyes. Other times, they are less educational and more absurdist.
It’s easy to laugh at the amount of time and extreme passion people pour into reviewing some ultimately meaningless products. But then again, I could spend hours reading what these same people have to say, so who’s the real chump here?
Some reviews (both joke memes and serious-though-hilarious) have made it big in social media. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, stop reading this now and read just a couple of the thousands of reviews for the infamous Hutzler-571 Banana Slicer. Or check in on the ongoing debate over whether or not employees of the Transportation Security Administration deserve to be children’s role models.
All jokes aside, the power of crowdsourcing a purchase is not lost on anyone these days. Often here on the Book Scan Blog, we’ll check in to see what real estate books are popular according to Amazon’s unknowable algorithms. But what about the top-reviewed real estate business books?
Well here are the top five, along with some review excerpts that I found helpful.
“Michael provides an easy to follow, step by step system to create long lasting relationships with our clients and vendors that result in an endless supply of referrals.”
“This book was just what I was looking for. Simple, do-able and personal.”
