The book world has its own group of leakers. BuzzFeed News obtained a draft of Milo Yiannopoulos’s Dangerous as it was submitted to Simon and Schuster in January before the project was cancelled.

Yiannopoulos is now self-publishing the title, due out on July 4, but BuzzFeed says readers should not bother, calling it “terrible… no good by any measure … a staggering failure … To begin with, there is little news in the Dangerous draft, unless you believe the specifics of Yiannopoulos’s beauty regimen to be newsworthy.”

They also say that Yiannopoulos is clearly past his sell by date, concluding “Who cares if some English carpetbagger says mean things on the internet? The United States has bigger things to worry about than Milo Yiannopoulos now.”

Few libraries we checked had ordered copies. It has fallen from its #2 placement on Amazon to #94.
