Amazon reported that Anthony Fauci’s book, titled: “Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service, and the Way Forward,” will not be available from the company or the Barnes & Noble bookstore.
Despite the decision, Just The News reported that a cache version of the listing still showed the book’s promotional description and pre-order status. The 80-page book was selling for $18 and was scheduled to be released on Nov. 2 by National Geographic Books.
The situation comes after a controversy was generated by the leak of emails from the White House epidemic expert. Several American politicians and journalists have called for Fauci’s resignation.
This Wednesday, Buzz Feed News published a series of e-mails in which Fauci talked about the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic and showed discrepancies in his messages. For example, in February 2020 he said that facemasks were useless in mitigating the disease but then insisted throughout the year that they should be used.
In another email the doctor said it is safe to engage in domestic travel despite the pandemic.
