Searing Criticism, Unhappy Author

by on January 17, 2005 · 2 comments

I recently reviewed a book called The Open Society Paradox: Why the 21st Century Calls for More Openness – Not Less. It’s not a good book and I said so.

The author has taken umbrage. I have no doubt that it stings to have something you’ve worked hard at openly criticized, but I feel no obligation to pull punches on a book with many weaknesses even if its author is a nice person.

His response to my review does say that the truth eventually comes out. In that spirit, I encourage all to read the review and the response . . . if not the book.
