Several weeks ago, in the interest of full transparency, we posted some negative reviews of our book. The time has come again. It’s not that we are masochists; in fact, positive reviews have regularly been posted on this site as well. Like this one and this one and this one and this one. (The last one goes a bit too far even for us, calling me Aaron to Levitt’s Moses; the funny thing is, Levitt does have a bit of a lisp, and Moses had a stammer — his reason for pressing God to ask Aaron, not him, to lead the stiff-necked Jews out of Egypt … but that’s another story.) So here are a couple of recent reviews that are far less laudatory. The first, by Arnold Kling, is from Tech Central Station and the second, by James Q. Wilson, from Commentary. It’s a very strange experience to have (co-) written a book about which so many intelligent people feel so differently; on balance, however, it’s been hugely entertaining: often gratifying, occasionally maddening, frequently humbling, rarely boring.
