Brent Underwood, an author who made headlines for creating a fake bestseller on Amazon, has inked a book deal.
To prove how meaningless the bestseller label on Amazon is, Underwood self-published a fake book of a photo of his foot. The book was called, Putting My Foot Down: A Book Featuring My Foot by My Foot. After he uploaded the title and sold three editions it earned the “No. 1 best seller” title in several categories. Underwood exposed this event in a column for The New York Observer and Amazon removed the title for being fake.
Now Thought Catalog has picked up the book and published a paperback about Underwood’s whole ordeal. The paperback is already listed on Amazon.
