Fauci’s upcoming book scrubbed on Amazon, Barnes & Noble amid backlash
Book will allegedly offer “universal advice to live by.”
White House coronavirus adviser and long-time U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci’s upcoming book has been scrubbed from and altered on online listings, amid criticism that he is profiting from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.
The book, “Expect the Unexpected,” was earlier pegged for a November release, according to its Amazon listing. As of Wednesday morning, the book’s listing had been entirely scrubbed from Amazon. However, a cached version of the listing, still displayed the book’s promotional description and preorder status.
The book appeared to still be available for preorder on some lesser known vendors such as Booktopia.
The scrubbing of the book comes after backlash from critics who accused Fauci of profiting off of the deadly pandemic the U.S. response to which he has overseen.
Among those criticizing Fauci is Fox News Channel contributor Joe Concha, who compared him to New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signing a seven-figure book deal about his efforts during the pandemic, which resulted in a high number of death among assisted-living residents.
“If you look at the numbers again, you had Cuomo profiting off a pandemic, a government official,” said Concha, also a media reporter for The Hill newspaper. “Now we have Fauci doing it as well. I think this is appalling.”
Daily Caller writer Greg Price slammed Fauci for “publishing a book and [becoming] the highest paid federal government employee while you lost your business and had your kids out of school for a year.”
Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told “Just the News AM” on Wednesday that Fauci likely “got paid more than Andrew Cuomo” for the book.
“He’ll get paid unbelievable amounts of money to tell all from his perspective,” Meadows told show host Sophie Mann.
The cached listings describe the book as offering “inspiration in [Fauci’s] unique perspective on leadership, expecting the unexpected, and finding joy in difficult times.”
“With more than three decades spent combating some of the most dangerous diseases to strike humankind – AIDS, Ebola, COVID-19–Dr. Fauci has worked in daunting professional conditions and shouldered great responsibility,” it continues. “The earnest reflections in these pages offer a universal message on how to lead in times of crisis and find resilience in the face of disappointments and obstacles.”
Fauci was also part of former President Trump’s coronavirus task force and is the director of the National Institutes of Allergies and Infectious Disease.
The book listing also said the book will offer readers “inspiring words of wisdom … centered around life lessons compiled from hours of interviews, offering a concrete path to a bright and hopeful future.”
