'Pedophile's guide' pulled from Amazon.com

The controversial e-book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" has been pulled from Amazon.com, a spokesman for the online retailer confirmed Thursday.

The self-published title's appearance on Amazon.com led to a public uproar and calls for a boycott of the site. As of late Wednesday, more than 2,000 Amazon.com users had left comments on the listing, nearly all of them condemning the site for selling the title.

The e-book's author, Phillip R. Greaves II, said he published the controversial tome to address what he considers unfair portrayals of pedophiles in the media.

When asked about the controversy, Amazon.com spokesman Drew Herdener would not respond.

    And to Ronald and Roger – stay on focus, you two – please. This is about pedophiles doing things to children. Stay on focus and save that energy for helping to put these guys where they should be.

    Amazon should not be allowed to not answer why they allowed such a book on their website. It seems like they pulled it due to the backlash, but without them ever acknowledging that them allowing it in the first place was wrong. Boycott Amazon anyway

    I will never make a purchase from amazon as long as I live. I recently stoped a co-worker from making a purchase on amazon today. This is not about freedom of speech this book is a treat to the most vonerable of citizens, it is a guide on how to hurt children and ruin thier lives, I belive everyone who purchased a copy should be investigeted. as for the author I dont have words to decribe how i feel about him, I just hope he doesnt cross paths with any children.
