Fauci Book Disappears From Online Pre-Sales
Fauci Book Disappears From Online Pre-Sales
Well, who had this on their Bingo card for the week? An upcoming book by Anthony Fauci, with the ironic title Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service, and the Way Forward, went up for online pre-sales on Tuesday. But by Wednesday the book had disappeared.
Bookseller Barnes & Noble had advertised it on June 1, complete with cover image of Fauci with his beloved mask.
Here we go…
Fauci book deal is the most unsurprising thing ever https://t.co/5dljUNczRB

But by Wednesday, even Amazon was coming up empty. They’re so sorry about that, but here’s a cute dog.
You can still find a cached version of the Amazon listing here, if you’re curious. Barnes & Noble also has a cached version, although both websites show a disclaimer that states “the current page could have changed in the meantime.”
Gee, I wonder why.
The Fauci book, which is all of 80 pages long, is set to be published by National Geographic Books on November 2. An overview of the book reads:
“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.”
“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.”
And if that’s not enough to inspire you to become a Fauci fanboy (or girl), Nat Geo is also releasing a biopic to accompany the book. The Walt Disney Company owns the National Geographic Channel, and emails from former CEO Bob Iger show that he strongly supported this Fauci love letter.
So what really happened to the online book pre-sale? Would it have anything to do with those released Fauci emails, which show that he downplayed the gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Virology Lab? Or the prospect that Fauci could make a nice profit from the book sales, even after he misled the public?
Oh, perish the thought! said the National Geographic spinmeisters, because this was just a mistake. Besides, Dr. Fauci won’t earn any royalties from the book or biopic, anyway.
“The book was prematurely posted for pre-sale, which is why it was taken down.”
“The book was developed by National Geographic Books in connection with an upcoming National Geographic Documentary Film about Dr. Fauci. He will not earn any royalties from its publication.”
My bullshit detector is spinning wildly, and I’ll bet yours is, too.
For example: does it sound logical to you that a longtime publisher like National Geographic would make such an amateur error? Furthermore, this was not a leak of secret information, either, like leaking the image of a new iPhone. Instead, the cached images show the typical rollout of a preorder.
On top of that, while National Geographic insists that Fauci “will not earn any royalties from its publication,” what about a fat advance? Nat Geo didn’t say if he got such payment, did they?
Joe Concha, media writer for The Hill, says this book smacks of NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo profiting off the Covid pandemic. Cuomo received a hefty seven-figure deal for his self-serving book. Meanwhile, thousands of New York City elderly died due to his handling of Covid. Concha wrote:
“If you look at the numbers again, you had Cuomo profiting off a pandemic, a government official. Now we have Fauci doing it as well. I think this is appalling.”
What’s more, consider that Anthony Fauci is the highest paid federal employee in the nation, and you can see why this deal stinks to high heaven. Especially after the Fauci email revelations that continue like to hit the fan like. . . well, you know.
For example, we have learned that Fauci downplayed gain-of-function research at the Wuhan lab. Then he lied to Sen. Rand Paul that his NIH never funded such research. What’s more, in February, 2020, Fauci knew that the independent National Academy of Sciences was planning to examine the origins of Covid. However, somehow that didn’t happen. Doesn’t that smell suspicious?
We’ve also found out that Fauci assured one of his Chinese colleagues, health official George Gao, that they would “get through this together.” Meanwhile he trusted whatever the Chinese were feeding him.
In February, 2020, he also emailed a colleague that paper masks don’t really work so well. Even though he has constantly told us peasants to diaper our faces with them.
“The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through the material.”
And if you’re curious why Facebook arduously censored posts that questioned if Covid came from the Wuhan lab, look to Fauci. He colluded with Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s Covid “information hub.”
No wonder Sen. Rand Paul tweeted this:
Told you 👀

But now we’re supposed to believe that pre-sales of the Fauci book were cancelled because of the publisher’s mistake. Really? Who you gonna believe — National Geographic or all those damning emails?
