Most of them are. Sadly a handful of aggressive ones are way better visible.

Alan - another thank you

"Malcolm is a Little Unwell" is truly remarkable. It's written by BBC correspondent Malcolm Brabant and is his personal story about his descent into madness after having had a routine vaccination.It's a troubling and touching story and I highly recommend it.

Please do not use these discussion forums to promote your own book. It is both unwelcome and against Amazon rules. From the "Important Announcement from Amazon":

"With the advent of the new (`Meet Our Authors') community, we will no longer allow self-promotional posts in other communities.

Starting on December 15, 2011, all "shameless self-promotion" activity will be limited to the `Meet Our Authors' community."

Put your spam in the "Meet Our Authors" forum. That's what it's for.

An excellent and inspirational book. A pity that he has been so discredited. You'll have to read it as an uplifting novel. I can recommend lots of books in this category.

Try reading the discussions, Tom C's post replying to yours appeared 2 posts above yours in reply to someone else who did the same thing.

I wonder how long it will be before the same situation occurs again?

I LOVED "Damaged? A Look Inward" by Connie Starr. It's almost surreal the obstacles she faced. I won't give anything away except to highly recommend it.

Mollyah, take a look at the post 4 above yours, it explains that self-promo is only allowed in the Meet Our Authors Forum and was in reply to someone who posted a self-promo shortly after someone else was reminded it is only allowed in the MOA.

If you did indeed write this book (difficult to tell from name and profile) then maybe you should have taken a bit of time to read the posts on this page you would then have been aware that self-promo is not allowed.

Two books I've enjoyed immensely over the past few months that you might enjoy too, all about ordinary lives that are extra-ordinary, and all that live on with you after finishing. Hope this helps, hope you enjoy reading these books too.
A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers.
Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom.

[ASIN:B00CD4AY3O Unofficial Passengers: The Adventures of a Naval Family in Pre-War Far East by Louie Rump.] Try this Kindle book for a true story about life in the Far East between 1936 and 1939 as experienced by a 26 year old Naval wife with two small children in tow. Sheer determination, guts and charm got her where she wanted to be (near her husband) when she should have stayed in the UK.
