Amazon and Barnes & Noble removed Fauci’s ’80-paged’ book

Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service, and the Way Forward, an 80-page book about Fauci’s response to the coronavirus pandemic was removed from the internet on Wednesday.

JustTheNews reported Fauci’s book has been removed from and altered on online listings, amid criticism that he is profiting from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

A cached version of the website shows the book’s listing before being removed from Barnes & Noble’s website, though that listing was no longer available as of Wednesday morning.

The cached version of Fauci’s book describe it as offering “inspiration in unique perspective on leadership, expecting the unexpected, and finding joy in difficult times.”

On Tuesday, the book was posted for pre-sale for $18 on both websites. The posts were then taken down.

“Before becoming the face of the White House Coronavirus Task Force and America’s most trusted doctor, Dr. Fauci had already devoted three decades to public service,” a description of the book read. “Those looking to live a more compassionate and purposeful life will find inspiration in his unique perspective on leadership, expecting the unexpected, and finding joy in difficult times.”

Book’s removal confirmed

The removal of the book was confirmed by National Geographic Books to DailyMail.com.

“The book was prematurely posted for pre-sale, which is why it was taken down,” National Geographic said in a statement.

The book includes interviews conducted by Fauci during his 34-year tenure as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Apart from this, Fauci is facing criticism after the Washington Post published emails that appear to contradict some of his public stances on face masks and other pandemic-related issues.
