Is Amazon selling a book advising pedophiles?

From the Associated Press:

"Amazon is selling a self-published book defending pedophiles, sparking discussions about the retailer's obligation to vet items before they are sold in its online stores.

The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover's Code of Conduct by Philip R. Greaves II offers advice to pedophiles afraid of becoming the center of retaliation. It is an electronic book available for Amazon.com's Kindle e-reader.

The book has triggered mounting outrage on Twitter and beyond. Twitter users are calling for Amazon to pull the book."

I don't know, but . . . doesn't this sound like a gag in very poor taste? Can this be real? Amazon did not respond immediately to inquiries about the book.
