Amazon took down my Obama book and did not tell me why (Update: the book is now available)

Amazon took down my Obama book and did not tell me why.

Before the book was removed, I had added some search terms that were the titles and authors of other political books, because I thought people who searched for those other political books might like to read my book. Afterward, I received en email saying that these new search terms had been approved, and that my book was available.

However, quite a few days later, I received another email email saying that those new search terms were in violation of their policy, and that if I did not remove them within 72 hours, the book would be taken down. I immediately removed those search terms. And they even sent me another email saying that my changes had been approved, and that the book was available. But then a few days later, they took the book down anyway.

When they took the book down, they never explained why. I have since contacted them requesting an explanation, but the person who wrote back said they are sending my question to someone else who is better equipped to answer. I am still awaiting their reply.

And here is the internet archive of the same link:

Update: amazon sent me an email which said my book will be available within 24 hours. However, they have still not explained why they took it down in the first place.

Update: the book is now available. But they still haven’t told me why they removed it.
