    I've never claimed to have such credentials. The techniques in the book are nonetheless sound.

    You could. He didn't. I don't take issue with the points you then raise in follow-up, either -- they can certainly be debated (I could counter, for example, that a committed strike is not...

    Sure, when it is based on facts and not on emotion. I have no problem at all with objective criticism. I see no reason why I should not dispute subjective and biased criticism.

    Josh, I did not in any way misquote you. I simply excerpted those portions of the review that are actually objective and factual. With which quotes do you now take issue? Do you now claim you did...

    Why is defending one's work against mischaracterization some manifestation of being "thin skinned?" I ignore more libel, abuse, and death threats on a daily basis than most people will ever read...

    You miss the point, Mike. You presume to tell me the review is objective, but you have nothing against which to judge this. The only people here who know if "Josh's" review is objective are Josh...

    Yes, I do -- it is subjective and editorial in nature, not objective in its analysis. This is not to mention the fact that, yes, the cuts and thrusts demonstrated in the book certainly are...

    You don't have a say in the matter, "Josh." Under fair use standards, I can quote you if I wish to quote you. That's the problem with making public statements -- they can and will be quoted.

    What you forget, Mike, is that I have read the book (having written it) and you have not. Josh's review is not objective. It contains elements that are objective, but on the whole it is quite...

    I'm sorry, did I miss a substantive argument somewhere? In my defense, Will's never offered one before. There's always a first time, though. Mea culpa.
