This week's edition of Studies in Crap reviewed Butt Prints in the Sand. Sam Glenn's ass-filled self-help book is pretty ridiculous, as Crap Archivist Alan Scherstuhl points out.
But Glenn isn't without his defenders. The positivity police have come for Scherstuhl, and we'd like to salute a couple of comments that Scherstuhl holds close to his heart.
Positivepitstop offers the first, uh, rebuttal:
So, this report proves that Alan Scherstuhl knows how to read, but doesn't know how to interpret. Dr. William Glasser says we interpret information based on our mental state. So, based on what Alan Scherstuhl wrote, is his mental state negative or positive? Most people who blog like this do so with an worthless opinion that doesn't change lives. The book butt prints in the sand sold 100,000 copies to teenagers who don't like to read, but lined up for hours to get a book that would give their life a little hope and encouragement. The difference between Sam Glenn who encourages people to be positive and Alan Scherstuhl who gets people to think "crap" speaks for it's self. Who is making a bigger and positive difference? There is a HUGE difference between the butt and crap.Commenter Dooner also butts in:
Sam wrote about Butts but at least he wasn't an ass :)
Why do you suppose Sam has spoken to millions of people and you write smack because of your ignorance?
Good luck with the promotion.
