Gurbaksh Chahal, the guy who sold ad network Blue Lithium to Yahoo for $300 million and will pretend to be poor on Fox's The Secret Millionaire this fall, has written — more likely, paid somebody to write — a book which you can preorder on Amazon.com right now. This very minute. We're very much interested in a review copy, but a skeptical reporter friend of mine tells me he isn't. How come?
His PR person was pushing me months ago to interview him about the book and his TV show. I guess he's blowing some of his Yahoo loot on vanity projects. The book industry is just as fucked as media. They publish shit like this on the condition the author agrees to buy 10k or 15k copies.
