    Question Something?

    "The author of the review is prejudiced to the topic of the book or to me or to you. I just know that for sure he is prejudiced to something, though I have no idea to what." [Me and you are the authors of the book.]

    In this sentence, I am not sure about the something and to what. Are they fine? Is there anything more that I should not be sure of?

    Thanks,
    Nyggus

    Re: Something?

    It doesn't work for me- is he prejudiced against or biased towards? I would use one of these to make it clearer, and say either...or.

    Then:

    "The author of the review is prejudiced against either the topic of the book or to me or to you. I just know that for sure he is prejudiced against something, though I have no idea to what."

    Is it fine now?
    Thanks,
