Even the Big Guys Do It
But it doesn’t make it right, of course. Harry Hurt III reviewed Suze Orman’s latest get rich book by opening with an ad hominen attack of Orman’s looks:
There are many things more flammable than the subject of mammon and women, but most of them come in steel canisters stamped ‘hazardous materials.’ Among the substances that need hazmat warning labels are the liquid that bronzes Suze Orman’s hair, the paste that whitens her teeth for her publicity photographs and her latest financial advice manual, Women & Money: Owning the Power to Control Your Destiny.
I hestitate to throw the whole mysogonistic label out there having not read much (none) of ol’ Harry’s reviews before. I hope the next book review of, say, Robert Kiyosaki, is treated with the same disrespect. How about “Kiyosaki’s Asian background makes his advice relevant only to the short rice eating crowd.”
