Bad Reviews: How to Make Good Use of Feedback - Thomas Oberbichler I don't even know what to say about this one. It's like something you'd read while waiting for a root canal or before going on Dr. Phil. It has little to do with any positive advice on dealing with reviews (which all you need to do is to try to take the valid criticism and improve your writing, and ignore the nutcases), and is just this shy of electro-shock therapy. It's a "feel-good" book directed at a new-age crowd, or at least the sheeple that watch stuff like Dr. Phil or Dr. Oz and need approval and need to understand that approval and all that sort of claptrap. If you're a writer trying to come to terms with that first bad review, have a beer. You don't need to bother with this book. It won't help.
