Douglas Groothuis, Ph.D., in my favorite review of Steal Like An Artist yet

  4. brocatus said: It’s very thorough and I love his conclusion: It could have been worse. :-)
  5. unwordinglanguage said: What an obnoxious ignoramus (the reviewer). The condescending tone betrays his “academic” mindset (speaking AS an academic). What a misguided, pompous ass. It’s not a review OF THE BOOK, it’s an imposition of the reviewer’s worldview ON THE BOOK.
  6. start-anywhere said: i tried to read this but i couldn’t keep going. “Professor of Philosophy” and “Denver Seminary” said it all.

  9. geekphilosopher said: I love how this guy said you were a “tame bohemian (unless he’s hiding something)”. What are you hiding Austin Kleon? TELL ME YOUR SECRETS :D
  10. sandmtntexan said: He’s so wrong. I’d *totally* put you in your 30s. ;-)
