Amazon’s Editorial Review of CUI

I sent the following feedback, using the feature at the bottom of the item page, to Amazon regarding an Editorial Review they selected for an Ayn Rand book.

    I am writing to suggest that you replace the Editorial Review of this book [Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal by Ayn Rand], and possibly the same for others by Ayn Rand, with an objective review that might help to sell the book.

    To see what I am referring to, I recommend Nicholas Provenzo’s recent analysis on this subject to be found here.

    I am writing after the third occasion of listening to complaints by friends about the Editorial Reviews displayed for one of Ayn Rand works. As I like your service, I am bringing to your attention that these Editorial Reviews are being vigorously condemned with a resulting tarnish on Amazon’s reputation amoung individuals that buy books.

    Your customer and a fan of Ayn Rand

  1. Thanks for bringing this to the attention of the Blogosphere.

    I’ve just sent Amazon.com the following:

    A colleague has brought to my attention, the “review” you’ve FEATURED for the book, “Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal,” by Ayn Rand.

    It starts off like this:

    Editorial Reviews

    From Library Journal
    As an interesting relic of the past, this outlandish piece of propaganda is worth the listener’s time, even though the author’s overconfident sense of her own rightness and persistence at pressing her points with little respect for opposing views can quickly become more than a little annoying.

    This is a highly prejudicial, inaccurate, wildly subjective, and dumb review. It is also disrespectful to the MANY followers and admirers of Ayn Rand’s ideas, such as MYSELF!

    How about some fairness and some quality control?

    Please get rid of this review. Or at least remove it from its privileged position at the top.

    I look forward to your reply and to clarification of your position on this matter.

    Best Wishes,
