Never a truer word was spoke than when Abraham Lincoln said that you can’t please all of the people all of the time. At least, I think it was Abraham Lincoln. Anyway, the same fellow who said that 95% of what you read on the internet is wrong.

But I digress.

I was mildly bemused to see this review on Amazon of my latest book A (Very) Short &c &c  (if you’ve not heard of this, you are invited to discover more here).

This should be a salutary corrective to this praise seen on Twitter:

I don’t think you need to understand Spanish to see that the reader liked my book a lot. This is especially pleasing in that I do not know the sender. I thanked the person and reminded the world that the book will soon be available in Spanish.

Funny old world!

    Bummer. Sounds like the same guy who said he couldn’t understand why I’d written my book (an authoritative foundation of science for a field which previously lacked it totally). Trolls are everywhere. Try not to let it get to you. Instead spend your spare time tracking him/her/it down so we can take appropriate action.

      Thanks John. These days I tend to regard such things as part of life’s rich tapestry. After all, there are people who believe all sorts of weird things and yet are able to put one foot in front of another without falling over, and even make valuable contributions to society. Or so one hopes.
