Edwin,

Hey...Suck it up and go.

However...actually, I think you are being too hard on yourself.

Metaphorically, it seems to me, that all he is saying is "Your tie is a little crooked."

Rather than whispering in your ear, "Your fly is open."

This review is much better than you think. He is complimentary, but points out some things personal to his own taste/judgement. That is what every reviewer does. In the end, they don't know any better than you do is the way I always have looked at things.

The only reviews I hate are the uncreative...PURPOSELY bitter and nasty ones.

I hope the book is doing well for you and continues to be.

Best,

IMR
