This seems pretty easy to explain: Ed, Chris, and Felice are old guys who wrote books relevant to old guys that were reviewed in publications read by old guys. Old-guy readers probably bought the books in a bookstore and think they are above Amazon reviews. The new writers are young guys who wrote books relevant to young guys. The young-guy readers almost certainly bought the book from Amazon (probably for Kindle, so they can read it any time). Young guys like reading and sharing opinions in dialogue online, instead of being told what to think by the old-guy book reviewers on pension at heritage media corporations. Sounds like a classic generation gap to me. Thanks for bringing these books to the attention of this guy who's teetering precariously between the old and the young.
