The Big Con: How Matt Barber Swindled Me Out of $30

Yesterday, I wrote a post taking issue with right-wing outlets that were claiming that people were giving Matt Barber’s new book, “The Right Hook: From The Ring To The Culture War,” negative reviews without have read it, claiming that the book isn’t even going to be released until next week.

As I noted, I already received a copy that I ordered from Amazon last week.  But now that I’ve started to read it, I made an interesting discovery: namely, that anybody who has read his columns doesn’t need to actually read the book before they review it … because they have literally already read it, since the book consists entirely of his republished columns! 

Nowhere on the publisher’s website or the Amazon page is there any sort of disclaimer that this “book” is really just a collection of Barber’s past columns.  Had that been made clear, I certainly would have saved myself the $32.00 I spent on this bound edition of his inane columns.

So, to save prevent anyone else who was thinking of buying this “book” from getting conned and ripped-off, here is the entire Barber book in links:
