Bad Press: The Worst Critical Reviews Ever!
Laura Ward (au). Invariably, we enjoy a bad review more than a good one. The most memorably savage reviews stay in the mind not just because they are mean, but because of their cleverly cruel turns of phrase that make perfect put-downs. This collection probes through historical records -- journals, newspapers, & magazines -- to bring you the nastiest -- & funniest -- reviews ever penned. We know that some have passed the test of time because the works they criticized are now forgotten. Other opinions have turned out to be drastically wrong. Here are the best reviews covering virtually all of the high & popular arts -- films, TV, music, literature, food, & theater. Each review is a prime example of critics letting off steam, & being wicked & witty in the process.

Fabric of the Future: Women Visionaries Illuminate the Path to Tomorrow
