* ''No Touching'' by Aileen Deng. Let's put it this way the Asexual Visibility and Education Network, [[OldShame who were responsible for its very commissioning, would kindly like to forget it ever existed]]. The book was published to promote awareness about {{Asexuality}} and debunk some of the most common myths, but the writer is incredibly ignorant of the theme and can't convey correctly what little she gets right, giving us instead a cliché storm that makes you want to scream to the protagonist "StopBeingStereotypical!". What little enjoyable stuff this tome has is ruined by the unpolished writing and inconsistent characterization. [[http://www.amazon.com/No-Touching-Aileen-Deng/dp/1449900313 Elizabeth the Gray's review]] goes into more detail. For a long time this book had a 3-star average on Amazon. Elizabeth and a pair of reviewers gave it one star each [[note]]On 2015 one more person reviewed it with one star, finally bringing it down to two stars[[/note]], and two people who haven't reviewed ''anything else on the site'' gave it four and five stars. Not to mention, the aforementioned four-star review almost immediately attacks Elizabeth's review. Way to be discreet.

* Of all the books meant to warn people about the [[CriticalResearchFailure dangers of]] ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'', none are as bad as Phil Arms' book ''Pokemon and [[Franchise/HarryPotter Harry Potter]]: A Fatal Attraction''. [[CoversAlwaysLie Despite what the cover says, Harry Potter only gets one chapter in the entire book]], which tries (and fails) to equate ''Pokemon'' with New Age beliefs, but stumbles into CriticalResearchFailure (not realizing that Digimon and Pokemon are made by two different companies and Digimon is significantly harder than Pokemon, failing to understand that Mewtwo had [[HumansAreBastards perfectly]] [[TheWoobie good]] [[TearJerker reasons]] to blow up the lab (granted, they were in a Drama CD only released in Japan, but still), ignoring the fact that you don't actually kill, maim, or steal anyone or anything in the game... and that's just three random errors he made), RougeAnglesOfSatin ("J.K.

"Zobat"?), over-reliance on fansites and websites already critical of Pokemon, ''[[ComplainingAboutShowsYouDontWatch and a letter where he outright states he doesn't actually play or read the things he's attacking]]''.

* ''I Am Scrooge'', a short (just over 150 pages) 2010 novel that attempts to ride the {{Literary Mashup|s}} bandwagon, with a story about Ebenezer Scrooge fighting an army of zombies. A description of Scrooge walking in a London fog defies belief: "As the air began to freeze and he was a right wheezer and he went by the name of Ebenezer Scrooge." This is just one of the novel's seemingly never-ending cavalcade of horrible topical references, which actually take up more of the story than any actual plot.

* As ''Crossroads of Twilight'' is to ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'', ''Naked Empire'' represents the bottom-of-the-barrel for Terry Goodkind's ''Literature/SwordOfTruth'' series. This book, even more than the others before it, is mostly [[AuthorTract one gigantic sermon against communism and pacifism]], containing the infamous "[[StrawCharacter evil-pacifist]]" plot of Bandakar. Even outside the conflict, Richard's dialogue is [[CharacterFilibuster constantly saturated with Goodkind's views]] when he's talking to his friends (including an idiotic side conversation where Richard and his half-sister discuss the "right" of hair to live on a person's head). The main plot of the series is advanced barely an inch by the end of this book, there are [[CharacterFilibuster speeches]] that go on for pages or even ''whole chapters'', and the plot's resolved in one of the most blatant {{Deus Ex Machina}}s in literature. Go look at the reviews on [[http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Empire-Sword-Truth-Book/product-reviews/0765344300/ref=sr_1_1_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1 Amazon.com]] if you want more proof.

* ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series has ''Crossroads of Twilight,'' a {{Doorstopper}} without content which generally takes place at the same time as ''Winter's Heart'' (the previous book). Most of ''Crossroads'' consists of PurpleProse about food and clothing the book has 822 pages, but you could condense it into 100 and not miss anything. The BigBad in this book is '''''grain weevils'''''. The series has LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters, but very few of them appear in what passes for the main plot; the book needs a 50-page prologue to explain what everybody's doing, and it doesn't help. Rand, the driving force of the series as a whole, only appears in the last few pages; he has the long-awaited confrontation with Loghain, but nothing comes of it. Every female character's identical, and they're all unlikable stuck-up bitches. The series had been heading this way for a while, but this is the nadir. But the later books ''are'' better, and you don't have to read this to understand them.

* ''The Blah Story'' by Nigel Tomm is the second-longest novel [[note]](the longest is ''Marienbad My Love'', by Mark Leach, with 17,000,000 words)[[/note]], containing both the longest sentence and longest coined word in English. This might have been SoBadItsGood, except the book's written something like "In a blah she was blah blah blah down a blah between blah roses blah blah blah her blah blah hair blah blah gently the blah blah trees..." A little tidbit of horror Robert Jordan's ''Literature/TheWheelOfTime'' series has a total of 4,012,859 words, and that consists of ''fifteen'' books all qualifying for {{Doorstopper}} status. ''The Blah Story'' has '''11,300,000''' words! Another book of Tomm's, ''[[LongTitle Scarlett Johansson Asked Artie Lange: "Are You Too Fat To Fish Some Natalie Portman?" He Answered: I Must Have Sex With Adriana Lima, Robin Quivers & Eva Longoria Parker As They're My Life Calendar]]'', is just as bad. It is a lot like ''The Blah Story'' in that it replaces actual words with phrases like "tra la la," "taram pam pam," and "ha ha ha" so that the sentences (and thus the book) make no sense.

* Alphascript Publishing and Betascript Publishing have published over 300,000 books. Sounds pretty interesting, until you realize that all of them are just a bunch of Wikipedia articles. "High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA Articles!", the cover of each book states. It gets worse:
** The title of each book is a complete lie. For example, why does ''Giving Circles'' have a Wikipedia article on the United Kingdom in it? While the Wikipedia article on "Giving Circles" ''is'' in the book, it only takes up one page of the 108-page book.
** The covers [[http://brianbusby.blogspot.com/2011/10/alpha-beta-dada.html are]] [[EpicFail epic failures]], such as the book on the Fieseler Fi 167 showing a [[CriticalResearchFailure C-130]], and another on the 1867 Canadian Election showing '''the United States flag'''.
** The editors don't check the articles to make sure they're accurate, which means that vandalism could end up in the books.
** The books are often only 40-50 pages long, yet cost up to $100. For Wikipedia articles that you can get on the internet '''for free'''.
** A lot of the books are "Temporarily out of stock" on Amazon. [[FridgeLogic How can something can be "out of stock" when it's printed on demand?]]
** Flu Press is a similar offender, even offering these so-called books [[EpicFail on eBay]].
* [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement All politics aside,]] A.J. Weberman's ''America's Most Dangerous Nazi'' is a bias-ridden, hateful piece of non-fiction that borders on libel and has no reason to exist beyond politician-bashing. Not even the covers (either of them) can resist {{Godwin|sLaw}}ning, by means of Photoshop. Rather than even make an attempt at neutrality or objectivity, the book resorts to slamming UsefulNotes/RonPaul and his supporters with cheap insults, picking the worst of the latter and representing them as the whole, even going as far to slamming non-supporters such as Glenn Greenwald with these insults just because they said a few good things about Paul. Every argument presented here is completely one-sided and transparent, foreswearing any attempts at fairness in favor of getting the message across. Allegedly, Weberman found himself on the receiving end of several libel lawsuits as a result of this book's release.
** If it were better known, it would qualify as a case of StopHelpingMe for Ron Paul's detractors and whatever legitimate criticisms they may have.

* Robert Newcomb's ''Literature/ChroniclesOfBloodAndStone'' series was billed as the next big epic fantasy series by its publisher, Del Rey, and given all sorts of heaping praise by reviewers who were clearly both bribed into giving a positive review and incapable of reading the books themselves. The first in the series, "The Fifth Sorceress", presents all women as either stupid and complacent or horrendously, disgustingly evil and corrupt; it's essentially a series of one DeusExMachina after another, and suggests that [[ArtisticLicenseBiology pregnancies last for somewhere between 24 hours and six months]]. Frighteningly, the sequel is several dozen times worse in every possible way.
** The ''Chronicles'' were tame compared to the second trilogy written by Newcomb, ''The Literature/DestiniesOfBloodAndStone''. The final book, "Rise of the Blood Royal", includes a huge ClicheStorm that makes Hurricane Katrina look like a breezy Spring morning.

* ''Rise of the Zombies'' is free on Google Books, but even then you'll want your money back. The book is a pathetic two pages long, and they're the two stupidest pages ever; a father and son are out fishing, when zombie UsefulNotes/{{Blackbeard}} hauls himself onto the boat and eats them. In the space of a sentence, the Zombies kill every single person on a nearby island. The president nukes the island, but the zombies somehow learn to fly planes and escape, and (again in just one sentence) kill all life on Earth. Out of nowhere, "Alien's from the planet Xenan" turn up and blow up Earth.
