Note: This MAY be my last BTR broadcast as I have found Spreaker to be far more stable and feature-packed, not to mention the light-years-ahead-jump in audio quality; IF this show fails since I'm using Skype which is notoriously unstable with BTR, come over to my spreaker station at http://www.spreaker.com/user/truthontap to jump in on a fresh episode where I'll continue this show, and probably, all future shows).

When you read a book, movie, game, or any kind of review from a critic, do you make buying decisions based upon it?  You may think twice after this show.

A blogger who calls himself Kalpar decided to do a review of my book, Name of Alt, in August of last year.  His revew was scathing; an all-out assault.  Normally, that would hurt a little, and I would shake it off and move on.  But as I moved down, from paragraph to paragraph, I actually questioned whether or not he was even talking about my book.  His facts were wrong; chunks of basic reading comprehension were missing--entire plot paths were absent from his understanding of the book.

He earned a spot, therefore, on the Tuesday TARD-day show.  Let's win one against the Kalper.
