Stephen Potter was a British humorist known for his ironic self-help books. He was also a writer and producer for the BBC.
"Your function as a critic is to show that it is really you yourself who should have written the book, if you had had the time, and since you hadn't you are glad that someone else had, although obviously it might have been done better."
