Feldman Skewered

It appears that scientists are not the only ones who do not grok framing. Jeffrey Feldman’s book got blasted by some ninkompoop in NY Times yesterday. Jeff responds:

Indeed, when I read that passage I wondered if the reviewer had given up on reading my book just after glancing through the table of contents. It seems that, instead of writing about my book, Fairbanks popped in a DVD of “The Matrix,” or maybe “A Clockwork Orange,” and then churned out a piece of creative non-fiction reacting to those other works of sci-fi.

Update: More about the “fairbanksing” of Feldman here, here and here.
