Boost a Chattanoogan’s Economy: Buy a Blank Book for $14.95

Chattanoogan Jimmy Moncrief has published a book entitled “Everything Obama Knows About the Economy.” The pages are all blank.
The Chattanooga TFP Saturday provided a report on this development long enough — with big type — to fill up several of those blank pages. An excerpt:
“I’m not trying to start a revolution,” said Moncrief, who identifies himself as a fiscal conservative without a favorite GOP presidential candidate. “I just want to make people laugh.”
Asked about his inspiration, Moncrief’s credits a similar bit of emptiness from Sheridan Simove, who, ahem, wrote a 200-page bestseller titled, “What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex.”
“I remember reading that it sold like 3 million copies,” said Moncrief, a 30-year-old Memphis native who graduated from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. “I’m a banker. It’s not some glamorous job, so I wanted to do something fun and also wanted to make money.”
…On Amazon, where Moncrief’s self-published creation is listed as “temporarily out of stock,” buyers can pre-order the book for $14.95.
….”Selling books is a great way to grow the economy,” said Tennessee Democratic Party spokesman Brandon Puttbrese. “It adds to commerce, shipping, transportation and, for this book, garage sales.”
An Amazon reviewer, identifying himself as CheddarPants, went a different route.
“While this book isn’t remotely original, I do have to admit that it was written to perfectly correspond to the reading ability of most people who don’t like President Obama, so I have to give the author credit for knowing his target audience,” CheddarPants wrote
