Editorial Sledging

Reading the introduction in my copy of Gulliver's Travels, I came upon this sentence:
'Only readers in a mood thoughtlessly to consume whatever the printed page offers can at this point avoid re-examining their assumptions about both the narrator and the book as a whole.'


And I'm meant not to take that personally? Like I haven't spent my whole entire reading life in that (apparently despicable) condition?

thank you for the headsup FXH. I'd not have known otherwise.
