Good thing books aren't canon.
True. But Ford's book is usually thought of as "Klingons done right", probably by some of the folks who shout "Canon violation!!!!!" at Klingon Warbirds.
It was more generational I think. Those of us who watched the 72 episodes over and over on syndication had that book before TNG came around to change everything.
Though I'm one of the "72ers" and have been reading Treklit since the Blish days, I've only just read "The Final Reflection". I think I tried to read it when it first came out, but put it down. Which is pretty rare for me. Reading it in 2012 was a bit surreal, as I had to push everything that has developed with the Klingons over the last four or so decades to the back of my mind to enjoy the book without having a nerd meltdown .
