(KMOV) -- A controversial book is no longer available on the website Amazon.com

The book was pulled after a national campaign online and on Facebook to get online retailer to stop selling a book titled "The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure.

The book was available for Amazon's Kindle device.

Here is how the author describes his book. 

"This is my attempt to make pedophile situations safer for those juveniles that find themselves involved in them, by establishing certian rules for these adults to follow. I hope to achieve this by appealing to the better nature of pedosexuals, with hope that their doing so will result in less hatred and perhaps liter sentences should they ever be caught."

News 4 has received many emails and Facebook postings regarding the campaign to compel Amazon.com to remove this book.  The number they are urging consumers to call is 1-866-216-1072.

One mommy blogger received this response from Amazon.com regarding her demand the book be removed.
