From what I can see 4.0, a cleaning & pressing would benefit this book greatly though

I think a reading and restrained drooling would benefit it greatly too!

As is it looks 4.5/5.0 to me. Perhaps it can be cleaned up a bit, but I see nothing that says a press will improve anything.

Looks real nice- congrats!

Agreed.

I'd say 5.5. Some stresses on the binding, slight color breaks, corners are blunted some. But the colors look good and the spine tight with good staples, no tears that I can see. I agree that a pressing won't do much and that a cleaning would. Congratulations! It's a nice book.

Yes - especially when done by someone good.

Heh ... I just happened to see the comment come via email, so I jumped in. I think the first, very low grade affected (downwards) all the subsequent guesses. (In psychology they call it the "anchor effect." Very useful for negotiations.)

Just curious, who did you use for the cleaning?

Lower grade was accurare. I think you asked that prior to press and clean.

You know I completely agree with you - I think it would be much cooler if 10 hidden grades were submitted first...

We used the following to estimate times for programming projects - it could be the same for grade estimates lol (I guess thats how they actually grade anyway right?)
