Occasionally, I receive books to review for this site. Some of them are good. Not all, though. Usually, I can tell if they’re bad within a page or two and I just stop reading. It’s just not worth the effort to read it. (Unless it’s *really* bad. Then that could be very entertaining.) I’d rather read the good ones and write about those.
Jen was in the same position, when she got ahold of John Harrigan‘s book, The Professor and the Dominatrix.
She wrote a classic review in which she outlined how bad this book is.
Instead of ignoring it, he responded by sending a letter denouncing her and her review…She sent him a personal email (she felt she owed him that), and he responded to that, too…
His email begins like this:
I don’t need writing advice from amateurs or lessons on how to take criticism…
Stay tuned for Harrigan’s next book, How to Win Friends and Kill Your Amazon Rankings.
