Eh… what? I had one paragraph about his example being off-base, and then the rest was about his overall point.

I didn’t comment about his reference to my book because it wasn’t really core to his argument. So it seems a little silly to argue about one little point just because it’s an indirect reference to me, even when it’s really not the point… no?

I also actually agree that companies shouldn’t be asking questions from my book (I believe I even say this in my book) and that candidates shouldn’t be memorizing solutions from it.
