I think I agree with some of their points about the limited usefulness of Stirner, and the convoluted arguments that are required to make him an anarchist, but they didn't really offer any alternatives to the problem that egoists & nihilists are often grappling with, ie. how to think about this situation where we've got a limited lifetime & live in a world where 99% of the population accepts slavery.

Most of the critiques I hear against Stirner amount to leftist asceticism, where in we are told self-sacrifice is worth more than what we as indivuduals crave and desire.

The 'greater good,' is always based in the ideas of a select few in seats of power hoping to solidify their positions.
