Amusing Amazon Anabaptist Review

Quite goofy - an Amazon review (note, not a user review, but an actual Amazon review) of a book on the history of the Anabaptists:
A trenchant analysis of modern psychology--an enterprise that Paul Vitz maintains has become a religion, a secular cult of self, now part of the problem of modern life rather than part of its resolution. Virtually rewritten, this second edition of the original 1977 text takes into account much of what has happened in the field of psychology during the past seventeen years. Two completely new chapters are also included--one on education and "values clarification" and the other on New Age religion.

"Values clarification"? Modern psychology? I could be missing my mark here, but this is an otherwise known aspect of the Anabaptist (although maybe they did play "lifeboat" scenarios to determine which one got out of the boat... perhaps the guy with the shortest beard?)
