News & Opinion: We're Not Making This Up

On the online site for Business Week yesterday you could find this interesting comment in a book review. In the section of what's Good about One Billion Customers: Lessons from the Front Line of China, the review noted "A colorful and cautionary how-to by an experienced China hand." And in the Bad category: "Its strength may also be a weakness. This is strictly a practical business book." Yes, correct: Business Week's book review of a business book faults the subject for being too much about business. In related news, Scientific American gives a thumbs down to a Stephen Hawking title that would have appealed more as a novel; and the New York Review of Books pans a book for being too bookish.
