Default Latest Review of Shahade book

Half a Bitch is Better Than None:

"Much of the press controversy provoked by the title and cover is
silly, and in at least one case, a ridiculous interview with Ms.
Shahade at the Chessville website, an assault against grammar: 'What do
you think of mostly men who say that they would object to the book
becoming part of a high school studies course, not because of the
history between the covers, but because of the word "Bitch" in the
title.' Despite my ignorance of what a 'mostly men' is, or why the
interviewer doesn't know questions end with a question mark, the
interviewer does accurately describe some of the criticism leveled at
Ms. Shahade's book. He also grasps the shallowness of the criticism."
