The forthcoming book by Dr. Fauci has been REMOVED from the internet after it was prematurely put on presale
A forthcoming book on Dr. Anthony Fauci has been removed from Amazon and Barnes & Noble after it was accidentally put up for presale.
The 80-page tome, entitled “Expect the Unexpected: Ten Lessons on Truth, Service, and the Way Forward,” will be released November 2 by National Geographic Books.
On Tuesday, the hardback book went on presale online for $18, before the list pages mysteriously disappeared.
On Wednesday, JustTheNews reported that the book had been “dropped from online lists… amid criticism that Fauci is benefiting from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.”
However, National Geographic Books told DailyMail.com that there was a more innocent explanation for the removal.
“The book was prematurely released for pre-sale, which is why it was removed,” the company said in a statement.
They added: “The book was developed by National Geographic Books in connection with an upcoming National Geographic documentary film about Dr. Fauci. He earns no royalties from its publication.’

Fauci’s forthcoming book will consist of interviews he conducted during his 34-year stint as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.
An overview of the book reads: “Before becoming the face of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force and America’s most trusted physician, Dr. Fauci has been dedicated to public service for three decades.
“Those seeking a more compassionate and purposeful life will find inspiration in their unique take on leadership, expect the unexpected and find joy in difficult times.”
The summary further reads: ‘The heartfelt reflections on these pages will provide a universal message on how to lead in times of crisis and find resilience in the face of disappointments and obstacles’.
The book is one of many books about Fauci that will hit the shelves in the coming months.
A children’s picture book about the expert, entitled ‘Dr. Fauci: How a Boy from Brooklyn Became America’s Doctor’, is scheduled for release on June 28.
It is based on interviews the author, Kate Messner, conducted with Fauci herself.
Fauci will also be the subject of a new “Disney-backed biopic” to be released in late 2021. Filmmakers followed the doctor for much of last year as he was at the forefront of the COVID pandemic
Meanwhile, the Fauci documentary will air on National Geographic later this year.
The channel – which is owned by The Walt Disney Company – has not announced a broadcast date.
E-mails obtained by The Washington Post earlier this week indicate that ex-Disney boss Bob Iger was extremely interested in the project.
The company also confirmed that he will not be paid for that project.
Fauci is currently the highest paid federal employee in the country, earning $417,608 a year as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. In comparison, the US president gets $400,000 a year.

It’s unclear if the documentary will feature footage of Fauci telling the American public in March of last year that they don’t have to wear face coverings.
Fauci stated in front of the camera on March 8, 2020: “There is no reason to walk around in a mask. If you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask can make people feel a little better and it can even block a drop, but it doesn’t offer the perfect protection that people think it is.”
It’s also unclear whether footage of Fauci downplaying the theory that COVID-19 originated in a Chinese lab will also appear in the documentary.
With the theory growing more probable, Fauci has admitted that further research is needed into the origin of the virus.
“I have no records of what the Chinese may have done and I am fully in favor of further investigation into what happened in China,” he told a congressional committee last week.
