(CNN) - The controversial e-book, "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure" has been pulled from Amazon.com, a spokesman for the online retailer confirmed Thursday.
The self-published title's appearance on Amazon.com led to a public uproar and calls for a boycott of the site. As of late Wednesday, more than 2,000 Amazon.com users had left comments on the listing, nearly all of them condemning the site for selling the title.
The e-book's author, Phillip R. Greaves II, said he published the controversial tome to address what he considers unfair portrayals of pedophiles in the media.
When asked about the controversy, Amazon.com spokesman Drew Herdener would not respond.
