ITV News reports that Mr. Pearl is Delighted Over Calls to Ban His Parenting Book.
Mr Pearl told the radio station: “I was delighted to hear that Parliament might ban my book, if they do, I will immediately advertise it as ‘the book banned in the UK’ and…we will end up selling another 100,000 books directly to the UK.”
Now, to clarify, the book would only be banned on the Amazon.co.uk website. I have not heard anything about making it illegal to sell the book in the UK. However, if it is banned on a UK website, it is technically “banned in the UK,” at least in one small part of it. Therefore, he apparently does not feel that it would be misleading to promote the book at “banned in the UK.”
@ADadCalledSpen writes More On To Train Up A Child and has some questions. (Disclaimer: some language on that site)
How, can a book sell more if it’s banned from sale? How can you sell something that can’t be sold? That would be illegals[sic].
