‘Pedophile’s Guide’ Removed from Amazon

The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure, a controversial title that generated boycott threats on Amazon yesterday, has been removed. The old link now opens the image embedded above.

The Today Show covered the story this morning. The author, Phillip R Greaves 2nd, spoke to reporters during the segment, adding: “Everytime you see them on television, they’re either rapists or kidnappers. It’s not accurate of that particular sexuality.”  BNet and TechCrunch have both written about the removal.

The Smoking Gun interviewed Greaves last night. According to the interview, self-published author Phillip R Greaves 2nd said he suffered from “manic depression” and admitted: “I’ve sold one copy so far.” Follow this link to read the complete interview. (Link via)
