Yes, written reviews are easy to spin... release a book, get all of
your friends/bots to write a good review on Amazon. Most books [non-
bestsellers] have < 10 written reviews -- not hard to get a + majority.
What matters is the actual buying behavior -- putting your money
where your mouth/keyboard is. Actual purchase patterns are hard to
spin unless you have a lot of money and a strong agenda. ;-)
