New Scientist interview

Interview in this week's New Scientist on Believing Bullshit here. This interview enraged one homeopath so much they immediately fired off a one star amazon review and posted here too (as "treejag" on June 13th).

PS books purchased on amazon.co.uk should be with you pretty quickly as their stock arrives about today.

You must stop responding to reviews of your own books.

Authors who do that get turned into Alain de Botton!

I hope it isn't considered too churlish or "elitist" to note that a great many opponents of reason can't seem to write even vaguely grammatical sentences, let alone spell them.

I do note though, for what it's worth, that "Treejag"'s brief ejaculation contained not a single argument.

Perhaps rereading the book at a slower pace would help, if indeed he/she read it in the first place.

They had not read the book. Their review of the book was based solely on reading the New Scientist interview (as they admitted in comments on their amazon review).

I was having a look on Amazon to see if they have any copies yet (they don't, neither do Waterstones.) and noticed that the one star review has been deleted.

Stephen Law said...

Yes I just spotted that. Wonder why?

I Just watched your discussion with Hamza Tzortzis and I have to say you were very impressive. I thought it was very interesting that although the audience clearly were filled with people sympathetic to the other side they loved you.
When is your book out and do you do concessions for the unemployed?

Hi Blogtastic - if I were selling them myself I'd give you a discount, but I'm not unfortunately. But amazon are doing it v cheap....
