Here is what an objective review looks like.

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.

It sounds like they don't understand the difference between an informed subjective review and an actually objective review.

Not much of a surprise, though.

Wow, you guys actually approach this in a serious manner.

They're using the joke to make a serious point and I'm just making a point in return.

Disclosure: the author of this review has had a number of friendly conversations with the gentleman running the bookshop from which it was purchased.
AH HA!!! It's obvious that these conversations were about where to leave the briefcases full of money!

What is the difference? An informed subjective review is what I'm looking for in reviews of any kind.

He should have rather reviewed this book : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sac…_and_the_Cross

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
