I wasn't thinking of buying this book but when I read some of the 'POed' critics telling us how terrible this book is I decided to buy it and sure enough I found it to be an excellent book. The 'critics' need to get out from their bedroom more often and get in touch with the real culture and real people. In most cases I find the critics to be self-absorbed, arrogant and with an ' on the rag' attitude. They are bunch are losers who think they know it all, and think people are all lined up to listen to what they have to say (hardly so of course). They tell us the book is biased, obscure, etc etc etc. They said the same thing about ,say, Gilligan's Island, which turned out to be one of the most popular shows. They still wonder how that happened, how dare people liked something that 'critics' found it to be unworthy. Well, people had a message for these critics ' F-U'. I really think these guys should consider getting a real job.
