Can't We All Get Along?

A.J. Jacobs, author of The Know-It-All, takes a poke back at Joe Queenan and his scathing review of Jacobs' book that appeared back in October of 2004. Jacobs is baffled by the vehemence of Queenan's review but manages to make fun of it. I don't understand why Queenan was so mean either. If you don't like a book, you don't like a book and it's okay to say that, but the not liking is supposed to be about the writing and story and the ideas, not a personal attack on the author. Play nice children or you'll be going to bed without supper and you'll never get dessert again!
