In reading just a few paragraphs of the "Look Inside", you can quickly tell how much slander, bullshit, and bias is contained in this book. It not only insults Virginia Tech as a whole, but every Virginia Tech student, past, present, and future, friends and family of Virginia Tech students, the faculty, fans, and especially those who have lost their lives in the events that have taken place on campus. This book is damaging to all of those associated with Virginia Tech as well as to the reputation of the school

      "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." I don't approve of free speech, and if I hear something I don't like, I want to strike back. That's why I'm signing this petition.

      This seems like a sick attempt to collect together tragic and horrifying incidents that could have happened in any town/campus and direct blame upon members of the community and the community itself. As a proud Virginia Tech alum, I wouldn't give a second thought to encouraging others to attend school in Blacksburg. Disaster and fatal events can occur anywhere, the Virginia Tech community is not immune to the sickness and desperation of mankind but it surely shouldn't be subjected to the insulting claims made public in this work of fiction.

      I think this book is plain rubbish.. if one wasnt there and didnt go through what we did that day and days after, u will never understand. The author and the publisher were wrong to release such an outrageous book in the market!

      The Hokie Nation is strong and resilient, the words of this book are offensive and completely ignorant. We have always stood strong in the face of adversity. It should be removed from Amazon, I can't even imagine why someone would want to buy this book.

      This is a piece of trash. The author clearly has an ax to grind against large universities in the US and has chosen the terrible events at Virginia Tech as his platform to blame universities for what wrong with America. He should not be given a platform to spread his own version of hate.
