Invoice Pollock, the founding father of the tech how-to ebook writer No Starch Press, referred to as out Amazon on February 13 for promoting what he says are counterfeit copies of his firm’s ebook, The Artwork of Meeting Language—copies that Amazon apparently printed.

Even the photo for the book's main listing on the Amazon marketplace is of a fake, showing a misaligned spine image.

Even the picture for the ebook’s most important itemizing on the Amazon market is of a pretend, exhibiting a misaligned backbone picture.

After Pollock’s put up on Twitter on Wednesday, different folks posted footage of different No Starch books that had been counterfeited by means of Amazon, together with books that had pages poorly lower. What’s even crazier is that this is not the primary time this has occurred.

In 2017, Pollock bought experiences of Amazon promoting counterfeit copies of Python for Youngsters, a preferred kids’s introduction to programming, and 4 different No Starch titles. The books had been simple to differentiate from No Starch’s manufacturing runs due to the poorer high quality of the paper and binding, adjustments seemingly ensuing from Amazon’s print-on-demand manufacturing.
