Bad, really bad. This goes to show how malicious people can be to their fellow human. I wonder how this book got published in the first place. After reading this 27 pages of evil to towards authors, I vowed to stop believing the negative reviews I see and just read the book myself. One man's meat is another man's poison. This book should be uprooted and thrown in the thickest darkness. The author should be ashamed of himself.
I'd like to preface my review with this caveat: the idea of writing a harsh review of someone's book is to me a disgusting exercise for the feeble-minded and soft-jawed, who lack the bravery and creative viscera to write anything creative or original
Doyle Wimberly's polemical dagger twists into the jaundiced flesh of the self-publishing industry, brandished by the disturbingly elitist principle that the writing of books should be left to the literate.
Many behemoths from the Amazon publishing pantheon are severely alliterate - no, anti-literate - such as Vince Stead, Marilynn Hughes and Cyndy Lou Wyman, who have written far more books than they've read, and will continue to their spirited attempt at wordsmithing. (Or they'll just rewrite the same book but interchange the important proper nouns.)
Other self-publishers on this site can TALK TO GOD. Dozens of these prophets have written "the book" on direct communication with god. If these people had let their inability to write cogent sentences stop them, we would miss all of these important divine revelations.
This is ill-disguised, elitist propaganda is likely put forth by the punctilious (if pusillanimous ) international copy-editing interest groups, who are bent on keeping the institution of literature exclusive to the literate.
