What's This Guy's Blog Like?


Philip M. Parker has written over 200,000 books. What's his trick? He actually compiles information from the internet, using complex algorithms, 60 or 70 computers, and programmers, to create books on various subjects. Search his name on Amazon.com and you'll find he has "authored" such works as The 2007 Import and Export Market for Household Refrigerators in Czech Republic and The Official Patient's Sourcebook on Hemochromatosis (condition where the body absorbs and stores too much iron). Here's the NYT article on his lucrative endeavor.

Oddly enough, it appears Mr. Parker is turning his sights to romance novels. Those should be steamy. If this guy had a blog, I wonder what it would be like?
