A book titled - What Every Man Thinks About Apart From Sex - containing blank pages has been lapped up by youths, making it a bestseller at Amazon.
British author Sheridan Simove's book with 200 blank pages implies that men think of absolutely nothing apart from sex.
The book managed to outsell famous works such as Harry Potter and The Da Vinci Code. The book moved 134,256 places up Amazon’s bestseller list to reach number 744, ahead of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code at No. 2,910 and JK Rowling's Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix at No. 2,406.
The 4.69-pounds publication has become a hit with the students, who are using it as a notebook.
A Nottingham University student said: I bought a copy for my mate as a joke and he started using it as a note pad for lectures. Now everyone seems to have one. It's started a real craze on campus.
Reviews on Amazon include: This book will undoubtedly become a great companion in the millennia old philosophical debate about whether or not you actually can judge a book by it's cover.
A must read for students studying anything to do with gender politics, This is a deeply insightful and philosophical read and in many ways
Simove understands the mind so much that he's able to explain it in one simple read. Yes, I read it in one session!, I just can't wait for the sequel
What an absolutely ridiculous thing this is. This sold more than Harry Potter and the Da Vinci Code??? I'm not a fan of either of those books but at least they took some effort and actually have words. This is just another inane step in the sexism towards men in this modern feminist man hating world.
Simove said: “After many years of hard work I finally realised that men think of absolutely nothing apart from sex. It was a shocking conclusion and I realised that the world needed to be informed of my findings.
An Oxford University psychology graduate, Simove, 39, said he never expected his work to become a bestseller.
When the book was published I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would outsell Harry Potter. But Britain's students seem to think my book is magic and who am I to argue? Simove has been quoted as saying by news reports.
British authorities refused to grant the publication the tax-free status it usually does for books.
The question now is when is a book not a book? Simove told AOL News. This is the first surrealist book ever made.
Simove said he is planning a PhD on the subject of what women think about apart from sex.I hope to publish my findings in another decade, he said.
