A book I wrote, Understanding Stupidity, was reviewed by Dr. Thomas O. Blank of the School of Family Studies and Center on Aging at the U. of Connecticut, Storrs. The review appeared in the Sept. 1993 issue of Contemporary Psychology, a journal of reviews published by the American Psychological Association (APA). It was very harsh, in some ways un professional and demonstrated Dr. Blank’s inability to understand what he had read. I availed myself of the opportunity to respond in the “Point/ Counterpoint” format made available to aggrieved authors by the journal. This consisted of a four-part exchange of statements between myself and Dr. Blank and appeared in the May 1994 issue.
