81- she's new, cut her a bit of slack! :P But in all honesty, OP- there has been a rampant publishing of books with false information due to the fact that people are getting their information from the wiki website.

93 - If you agree with your picture, the sun doesn't burn because of oxygen, actually, nothing burns, but it is the energy given off by hydrogen combining with hydrogen to make helium. Also, I'm Christian and I don't know where you got that argument from.

^ I'm a very religious Muslim and I don't run around and try to get atheists to become religious. As long as they respect my views I'll respect theirs. :) One of my best friends is an atheist and I'm okay with that.

79- most recently "Killing Lincoln" and soon to be released "Killing Kennedy" but he has also written such books as: "Culture Warrior", "Kids are Americans too", "The Oreilly Factor" etcetera.

I agree that he's smarter than people give him credit for but he has lowered the bar considerably. Also, I do not agree that he's a master debater. Masters of debate don't generally have to cut people's mics to make their points. Now, if you'd said he's a masturbator...

Is OP the publisher or the authour IM CONFUSED!!!!!

If it is a non-fiction book editors are very careful when publishing. They don't just check spelling and grammar, editors check all the facts and sources. It won't be published.

It could be self or vanity publishing, which means that it will only be bought by friends and family. If it's something like that, I doubt you have anything to worry about.

I'd like to know the name of this...book, for lack better term. I would also like to write a novel. It'd be called "How idiots like Stephenie Meyer become New York Times Best Sellers". This book would be a prefect source.

A novel? And Stephenie Meyer is actually a decent writer. The Host was much better written than the Twilight Series. If you're going to bash on any author, it should be on the YA authors that began to get their lame vampire books published after she did.

Actually Meyer isn't a decent writer at all. She constantly rapes her thesaurus, actually manages to use the wrong synonyms for the words she needs and uses the same words/sentences over and over again (I remember this one page where NEARLY EVERY sentence started with "I said"). She can't describe situations and thus avoids doing so (for example: she let's Bella say that gym sucked and that a ball hit her head or some shit. SHOW, DON'T TELL), and so on and so on. And yes, I read the first Twilight book to see what all the fuss was about. FML.

Most people who hate on twilight have neither read it or seen the movie. They just base their opinion off of the movie's fanbase. I'm not saying it's the greatest book ever, but at least read something before criticizing it. This whole 'I'm a grown man who doesn't like a book aimed at teenage girls' thing is getting old. Who cares?

Hey 46 I'm a teenage girl and I hate Twilight and I read it when I was innocent enough to think it could be a good book and was forced to watch the movie both suck out loud and should be destroyed.

46 - wrong! Most people who dislike Twilight dislike it because they have read/seen it and formed an opinion from there. And the fact that it's written for teenage girls doesn't change the fact that it's terribly written, and casts emotional abuse in a positive light.

You can dislike a book without constantly pointing it out, criticizing the author, and making fun of the actors in the movie version. There are plenty of worse books out there. They just don't get shit because they are not as popular. People who constantly express their hate for twilight are worse than the crazy fans who actually like it.

most people don't hate Twilight just because it's stupid and badly written. like previously mentioned, it glorifies abuse and subservience while simultaniously shitting on cultures the author knows nothing about.

The only reason I read Twilight was to screen it for my little sister. I found out later she had already read it, and lied to me. I confronted my mom, because quite honestly that book has so much in it that children shouldn't read. Why is Edward such a whiny git? It doesn't show any examples of how a relationship would be, or should be. It doesn't show friendship, proper problem solving in situation. All the Twilight books manage to do is create a mess of bad situations and even worse decisions. But it's AIMED at younger readers! I'd rather her read some Roberts romance novels.

38 - I just said that the Host was much better written than the Twilight series, and you're still basing your opinion off of her first Twilight book? The Twilight series were fucked up, in my opinion, because it was like her own sexual fantasy sort of thing that she got published. And like the other things that were said; it glorified abuse and whatnot. But her writing in the Host was much better and the plot was more original as well.

46-I actually read all the twilight books, and well, they made me hate the human race just that much more. Then i watched the movie and...*sigh* WHY GOD, WHY!!!!
