Pinheads

I find it disturbing that the other reviews so far put the book down, when it came out today. Obviously, they haven't read the book. And some of them admit it!!!! Pinheads?

RESPONSE: When the title of a book references "pinheads," a very juvenile name-calling reference, immediate comments and commentary are justified. When a summary that is taken from the book's jacket states that this author is "as always fair, balanced..." blah, blah, blah, which contradicts someones ongoing experience from the author, immediate comments and commentary are justified. When there is a preview of the book available (as there is on this site) immediate comments and commentary are justified without having first read the book cover to cover. When an author who is famous (or infamous) for a very specific opinion of what his "American way" is about, and the book's jacket references that he is "guarding" it, immediate comments and commentary are justified...

    Is this really anything new?

    What I find more disturbing than the book is the lack of respect and courtesy that people on either side give the other. Since when has it become un-American to disagree? Our biggest problem isn't right, left, or center. It is the absolute belief that one side is right and the other is not only wrong but a (fill in with the derogatory word of your choice) therefore totally incapable of contributing anything, not only to the debate, but to the society at large. If we are to solve anything, from crosswalks to the economy, we need share ideas and find common ground. All the screaming and shouting is just one more form of air pollution.

    Of special note to cueCP - Advance copies of books are made readily available to reviewers and major buyers. These copies are cheaply made, often still have typos, and clearly marked as not for sale. That doesn't mean they don't find their way around and get read.
