THE DIRTY ARMY: Hey, I was curious to see if you would post my review of your book Sex, Lies, and The Dirty on your site? I bought and read your book, submitted a review on Amazon, and got an e-mail from Amazon rejecting to publish my review. Amazon said I did not adhere to these guidelines: Written reviews must be at least 20 words long. The ideal length is 75 to 500 words. Your review should focus on specific features of the product and your experience with it. Feedback on the seller or your shipment experience should be provided at www.amazon.com/feedback. We do not allow profane or obscene content. This applies to adult products too.
Advertisements, promotional material or repeated posts that make the same point excessively are considered spam. Please do not include URLs external to Amazon or personally identifiable content in your review.
I adhered to all guidelines above. Now since you’re such an honest guy, and have no problem posting others’ opinions on a forum you claim helps people…I just wanted to see if you’re brave enough to post my honest and candid review of your book. Unless of course, the review is not to your liking and you would never use your own site to damage your reputation. I understand. I hope at least YOU read my review, so here it is:
After finishing his book, you’ll have at least one interesting and worthy message from it: even the news is fake. His revelations about his interviews with Anderson Cooper should be a more wide spread topic. News is fake. Not just the reality television shows. Nik Richie is a modern day crusader to preserve our 1st Amendment. This part of the book is highly relevant and enlightening in describing how our media/society operates today. His examples with the website situations are an interesting read as a result.
He tries to pull the honesty card for damage control as his image as an insensitive asshole, and his stories are always openly candid. Does it help his cause in the end? I don’t know, I guess to each his own. I found it particularly sad that Nic Richie needs to drop celebrity names (he looks desperate!), when he is actually far, far removed from celebrities. What I gather about his wife, Shayne, is that she is as shallow as I remember her from The Bachelor. At one point Richie mentions how she can paint her fingernails up to 6 times a day…Really Shayne? Your days are filled with painting your fingernails different colors? The picture I got of her is nothing more than I do out of my average manicure girl at a cheap Chinese salon. I think they’re both clever people, but classless…just read the title of the book again.
You read the entire book and that is all you got from it? Thanks for being honest I guess.- nik
