Michael Panzner hits back!

I guess when you dish it out, you have to take it back too.

I had posted the same review (my post of yesterday) in and the author Michael Panzer responded:

"Michael Panzner says:
It appears that the "reviewer" is the CEO of California Software Co, an India-based company whose share price has collapsed 84% since January 2008. Based on past history, a near total wipeout like that usually signals serious incompetence or malfeasance in the executive ranks. Or that those in charge have totally lost touch with reality. I wonder if that had anything to do with this "review" (I use the term loosely, since it's not clear the "reviewer" actually read the book)? "

I felt that since Mr.Panzner may not be aware of my blog, I should post his reply here also.

If majority of people in the US have same attitude as this author - like bashing credibility of reviewer instead of refuting comments, may be he is right about US.

It is in rather poor taste for an author to retaliate to a "not so good review" by pointing fingers at the reviewers professional performance. Maybe I am missing the point but I don't see a connection!
