In the wake of the Penn State sex scandal, the fact that a book called Touched, the story of Jerry Sandusky’s life in his own words, still sits on Amazon’s virtual bookshelf is both disturbing and horrid.

This disgusting coincidence is highlighted by many Amazon “book reviewers.” We’ll show some of the best best book reviews after the jump. Sandusky’s autobiography highlights his college football career and his involvement in children’s charities, including the founding of his charity, “Second Mile.”

Which we all know now he used to find his vulnerable boys to prey upon and sodomize (allegedly).

Here are some of the more colorful book reviews:

By dakota loomis

100% false advertising by Mr. Sandusky. Not a single page in this book “touches” on how to appropriately gain the trust of young, at-risk boys, and then use that trust to perpetrate horrifying sexual assaults on the very children who turned to you for guidance and support. Almost as disappointing as the first time I watched “Touched by an Angel.” Don’t even get me started on that bullcrap. I still can’t watch anything with Della Reese in it.

By G. Fawkes

When it comes to touching, there’s nobody I know of that can better call upon 40 years experience of bad touch than one Jerry Sandusky.

Stay hard Jerry.

You sick piece of excrement. JoPa you aren’t clean either buddy.

By M. Munson

Mr. Sandusky is both a genius and a narcissist, which makes him the perfect predator. At no time was his narcissim more apparent then when he titled his book “Touched”. I guarantee this coward will “off” himself, before he ever spends a day with the general prison population. I, for one, would like to see him spend the rest of his life locked up with the general prison population; then, perhaps he can write the sequel entitled “Touched II: Predator Becomes Prey”.

By Disgusted

Please pull this book. What a piece of garbage is Sandusky and Penn State? How about the GA who witnessed the rape? Ruined Penn State for a long time.

By Fris

There is no greater EVIL on earth than someone who takes advantage of his good fortune to TORTURE AND RUIN the lives of CHILDREN in unfortunate life circumstances. Makes me SICK

By lulumojo

Revolting, disgusting, evil, child abuse. Please remove this book, Amazon. How can you, in good conscience, have this book, with the unbelievably ironic title, still for sale?

Agreed, Amazon, do the right thing and pull this book from your listings. Readers, call on Amazon to make this happen.
