Michael Knowles’ book “Reasons to Vote for Democrats: A Comprehensive Guide” has hit No. 1 on Amazon.com’s best-seller list even though it contains 266 blank pages and a bibliography of sources.
The self-published book by the Yale-educated columnist for The Daily Wire was released only last month but has catapulted to the top of the online giant's best-seller ranks.
In an interview with Fox News, Knowles called his book “the most exhaustively researched and coherently argued Democrat Party apologia to date,” explaining that he had been observing and researching the Democrats for the last 10 years before deciding what to put in the book.
“When I observed their record and the reasons to vote for them — on reasons of economics or foreign policy or homeland security or civil rights and so on — I realized it was probably best to just leave all the pages blank,” Knowles continued in the interview.
The book contains chapter titles like “Values” and “Civil Rights” but all the pages are snow-white blank, making a statement about how the conservative journalist (and many others) view the Democrat positions and track record on various issues.
Amazon.com reviewers seem to mostly enjoy the gag premise of the book and have joined in on the fun.
One reviewer wrote that the book was a “phenomenal piece of literature,” and another said that “if Democrats copied and pasted the contents of this book into their national platform they could become unstoppable.”
“In this poetic work, I have found what my heart has felt, but my words could never express,” wrote another reviewer.
In total, nearly 1,500 readers have taken the “15 or 20 seconds” Knowles touted to read the book and post their comments, and nearly 90 percent of those comments have been positive.
Twitter praised the “troll” nature of the book.
