This book is still for sale on Amazon.com as of this writing.   (Amazon.com)

(Newser) The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure has been removed from Amazon's e-book store—but a similar book remains for sale. Understanding Loved Boys and Boylovers (which, disturbingly, has a 2.5 star rating) is described in Amazon's review of the book as such: "Defensive in tone and amateurishly produced, this monograph uses both pseudo-scholarship and anecdotes in its attempt to justify its target audience's actions and feelings."

It's garnered about 45 largely negative reviews, but a Customer Discussion thread claims that more than 100 negative reviews have been deleted—and apparently, customers have been complaining for years, the Los Angeles Times reports. On the book's description page, its author denies that it is a "how-to-molest-children manual" and insists it's simply "a plea for reasonableness and understanding."

Look like it may have been removed. I have seen NO apology from Amazon.com for selling these books. Also, HOWEVER, I want to let you know that AMAZON.com has MANY MORE sick and abusive books about men seducing and raping little boys. Please boycott AMAZON until they acknowledge that promoting child-rape is evil and will stop selling those materials on their site, not just take it off because it was going to affect their holiday sales. One book is so disgusting I won't even post a link, but it has a drawing of a little boy - showing him naked in the front and back. It is an erotic boy-lover book and it's author has MANY books for sale on AMAZON.com... Protect our children - avoid Amazon!

so I think a book on the best way to kill a pedophile would be unacceptable?....

Catholic churches world over probably have tons of this hidden somewhere.
