Good reviews for bad books

Some books deserve the reviews that they get. Here are some of those reviews.

  • "Once I put it down, I couldn't pick it up again" - New York Review of Books
  • This is not a book to be set aside lightly, but to be thrown with great force.
  • This book fills a badly needed gap in our knowledge.
  • There is much in this book that is original and interesting. Unfortunately, the interesting bits aren't original and the original bits aren't interesting.
  • This book changed my life. Now my table balances...
  • "From the moment I picked your book up until I put it down I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it."
