You can try to do some analysis by adding some metrics to it:
1. How many reviews each of book got - more I'd say mean it has possibly more popularity among readers
2. How many of those reviews are of "Verified Purchase" - that possibly means they are real, rather than possibly fake if there's no such mentioning

Book 1
Book 2

Also you can check our certification forum, might there be too something.

And maybe even more important: use the "Look Inside" function to have a look at the actual content and read some pages, so you have an idea about personal preferences like writing style.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
