Authors need thick skin

Richard Bejtlich has been posting Amazon book reviews like a mad man over on his Tao Security blog.  One of those reviews was for Digital Forensics for Network, Internet, and Cloud Computing.  Richard gave the book two stars and one of the authors, Clint Garrison, isn’t happy.  The two of them were exchanging messages via Twitter.

When I checked this morning it looks like Clint’s Twitter account, cpsec, has been deleted.  Also Clint’s comment on Amazon was removed.  If you’re going to create something you need to realize not everyone is going to love it.  That’s okay.  You don’t want to be the person who never learned to accept constructive criticism.
