Last month, a book named 《Steve Jobs Gives 11 Advices To Teenager》 was being put up as the fifth among the Top 5 bestseller in the financial book category in a Taiwanese book store “KingStone“, which recorded more than 4,000 of sales, and made over one million NT (roughly $39000 USD) of profit. The figure is reasonable if that’s really written by Steve Jobs, however it is not.
The book was launched in April this year in KingStone, translated by a person named “John Cage”. However the content of the biography did not discoursed how those 11 advice were made or under what kind of occasion, which raise questions of whether it is written by Jobs. Moreover, the genuine one is meant to reveal in November, not April.
A Taiwanese reporter tried to contact the writer, but the contact number and the registered address are incorrect. More interestingly, the Top 3 Taiwanese stores — Books, Eslite, KingStone claimed the publisher has already showed identification which proved that is authorized, therefore the book won’t eliminate for the shelve yet.
According to the head of the Consumer Protection Commission department, if it is being identified that the publisher is deceiving, then consumers have the right to demand for full refund. And, if the content of the book is a fraud, then the publisher is committing “Criminal Law”.
If you want to buy this book, you may purchase it via Taobao (here), which is selling at $52 Yuan (around $8.1). Also, you may read the index of the book on the Taobao page.
