http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shill A shill, plant or stooge is a person who helps a person or organization without disclosing that he or she has a close relationship with that person or organization. Does that fact that he wrote a book for the same publisher constitute ‘a close relationship’? Me thinks no. :::Shill typically refers to someone who purposely gives onlookers the impression that he or she is an enthusiastic independent customer of a seller (or marketer of ideas) that he or she is secretly working for. The review is detailed. This is not marketing. What’s your problem?

And he did just that. He analyzed and recommended it. What do you want?
