October 27, 2005 You get what you pay for.
There is a lot of free stuff at Nerd Prom. Marketing weasels know that geeks are ahead of the mainstream by five to ten years so getting your product in the hands of the largest gathering of geeks from all over the world is Good Stuff.
Back in 2004 they were giving away stacks and stacks of advanced reading copies of Wild Animus by Rich Shapero. After putting it off for fourteen months I finally read twenty unimpressive pages and started having second thoughts. So I checked out the Amazon Customer reviews to see if this book got any better.
I feel bad for Rich, but not bad enough to read anymore of his book.
Anyone else wanna give it a try?
