Is it typical for professors of literature to "review" books based on fund-raising literature? Apparently it is if they're progressive. Michael Berube -- one of the professors profiled in my new book -- has written a lengthy blog about the book but using a fund-raising letter the Center sent out as a text. This leads Berube to attack the inclusion of Robert Reich among the profiles. But Robert Reich is not included among the profiles -- this was a mistake made by author of the fund-raising letter. On the basis of another leftists "review" on Amazon, Berube thinks the book is "apparently just a bunch of reprints of David's DiscoverTheNetworks pages. Sorry Michael it's not. Berube's blog also notes that Professor Ron Karenga is included (and he is) and is described as a "torturer and the inventor of Kwanzaa" which he is. Berube's retort: "most of David's readership thinks torture is just fine." Thanks Michael for justifying your inclusion in a book about what's wrong with the university.
Of course the fact he is only reading a fund-raising letter (avoiding therein the stress of reading a 112,000 word book) doesn't prevent Berube from pronouncing The Professors an "outrage." I consider that a medal of honor Michael. Now why don't you try actually reading the book Herr literature professor and writing a real response. If you have intellectual fortitude to do this, I'll post it and answer you.
PS: The book is only a stressful read for radicals; for the others it's a gas.
