while i can't speak for others, i highly value reader feedback,
regardless of the direction of the review. if something sucks or if
i'm completely wrong somewhere, i need to know about it. the point is
to continue to improve it so for future posterity. that's why i put
both all reviews i can find on the book's website, so that hopefully
people can make more informed decisions than just judging a book by
its cover. if you're scared of negative feedback, you shouldn't be
writing a book for the general public; or, as an alternative, write a
book soooo long, that no one can possibly finish it much less review
it. ;-)
