I originally thought that it would be enough for me simply to comment on this post, however, I’ve done that, but I can’t seem to get it out of my head.
It’s not the author’s post that gets to me; I believe she’s just throwing out food for thought, and from her tone, it doesn’t seem (to me) that she is really against the books as such. It was the comments that hit the nerve.
It seems to me that there’s a need by many American people to make sure that they suck the individuality out of absolutely everything by creating politically correctness in every aspect of their lives. The problem isn’t limited to the States though, it’s widespread. When will it stop? Do you not realise that the more people have to be careful about what they say, do, and write, the less they’ll eventually say for fear of ridicule? Now we’re applying it to business books! For goodness sake, is nothing sacred?
The solution is simple: if you don’t like the title of a book, don’t buy it; and If you’re unhappy about war, send a letter to your president.
But let me make my own decisions…!
