Q said it best "If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross, but it's not for the timid."
"a little bloody nose" is no longer accurate.
These days, it's more like "beaten to a pulp" every other book.
The reason is equally simple: it sells books these days.
