Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Even though you've never heard of her, Emily Smith has in only a few months become one of the most prolific contemporary writers of our time. No matter what the subject, if it is related to any living movie star, she will have a book about them - guaranteed. For a second there, her encyclopedic celebrity knowledge seems impressive, until you realize it is all copied from Wikipedia - not that this little detail is ever really mentioned in her books. Hundreds of different titles, all sold directly by amazon.

The introduction to many of her books helpfully explains that their content was generated by volunteers (not clarifying that it's those who contribute to Wikipedia). "Nothing found here has necessarily been reviewed by people with the expertise required to provide you with complete, accurate, or reliable information.. all used third-party trademarks belong to their respective owners. Contains selected content from the highest rated entries, typeset, printed and shipped, combining the advantages of up-to-date and in-depth knowledge with the convenience of printed books.."

It's nothing new. Internet security expert and author Ben Rothke was among the first to figure out what was going on with this new crop of "content farmers" who have learned how to abuse the system and resell free online content through legitimate retail outlets. In his article "There's a Sucker Born Every Minute - and Charlatan's to Make Sure They Pay for It" (October 26, 2011), he found an author of nearly 400 books, Kevin Roebuck, who copied off Wikipedia, bound the contents into book form and sold to unsuspecting customers on amazon and on Barnes & Noble. His publisher? Tebbo, otherwise known as Emereo Publishing, who - surprise - publishes Ms. Emily Smiths vast body of work.
