The Problem with Social Product Reviews

When you are an author, and you dare to write on topics outside your main field, folks who disagree with you swarm to Amazon.com to give your latest book a bad review that sounds real.

As a hypnotist, I look for three tells (that could be false-positives):

1. Review starts with “I am usually a big fan of this person but…”

2. Criticism is in the form of “War and Peace doesn’t have anything about Russia in it.” (Meaning the reader did not read the book but might have skimmed a page or two.)

3. A 2 or 3-star review, to make the ploy seem less obvious than a 1-star review.

I do not allege that these two newest reviews are fake. But these are the types you would look for right about now, with all three tells, as I start angering people with my Trump writing. But as I say, these could be false-positives. They just happen to fit the form perfectly.

I will ask those of you who read my book to confirm in the comments that these reviewers appear to have not read it. (The real readers understood the book to be about systems versus goals, not advice. The book clearly says it is not advice.)

Am I wrong?

Update: The tell on the second review is the two words “old hat.” That person either skimmed the book or did not read it. I think the folks who did read the book can confirm in the comments that the VERY POINT of the book is that it is contrarian advice. A real criticism might have looked like this: “His new ideas do not appeal to me.”

And any reference to “already been done” without a link or a book title where it has already been done is another eyebrow-raiser.

Podcast Reviews: We Got This and Always Been Silly

2015-03-28-1427524769-3113668-got_this.jpeg
What do you do when you’re a regular cast member on a popular podcast that’s about to close down its phenomenal run? For Mark Gagliardi and Hal Lublin, fixtures on The Thrilling Adventure Hour (not to mention regular turns on Drunk History and Welcome to Night Vale) the answer is to gear up your own podcast.

And so they have.

This week marks Episode 4 of We Got This, where the two comedic actors and vocal artists match wits and absurdity to settle debates on the oddest of topics. The current edition looks at mankind’s classic struggle: Creamy or Crunchy Peanut Butter?

The two gentlemen stray frequently off topic and, when they do, their back-and-forth has a little of the feel of the popular (though intermittently released) Mike And Tom Eat Snacks. Their interplay is pretty entertaining and, with episodes running just a tad over half an hour, if you have the bandwidth for a bit of goofiness in your podcast listening day, We Got This should fill it nicely.

New York-based standups Brandon Scott Wolf and Anthony O’Connell how found a way to fill their off-stage hours. They’ve started the Always Been Silly podcast, where they invite fellow comedians to come on the show and tell some remembered silly story from their lives.

The latest installment features Casey James Salengo whose story deals with how, at the age of five or so, he disrupted the dance recital of a girl several years his senior that he had a bit of a crush on. He has vivid recollections of inviting himself on stage and proceeding to do a series of “dance moves” – which were nothing more than a collection of battle stances he picked up from watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Someone from the local paper was in attendance and wrote an extensive story on the incident. The rest of the show takes off from there, with the hosts Wold and O’Connell chiming in with stories that are brought mind by the guest’s adventures. The episodes are not very long but they are, as advertised, always silly.
