Outraged readers ask publisher Pegasus to pull the book from stores and its online site

“Placing Barack Obama and Adolph Hitler alongside truly great political and humanitarian leaders is disgusting,” said Jake Starsky.

In addition to Obama and Hitler, the book’s cover has photos of Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

A blurb on the back of the 2016 book says its purpose is to “focus on some of these powerful world leaders who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of their countries.”

Pegasus did not respond to emails asking if “Great Leaders” had generated earlier criticism or why a title with a May 2016 publish date was still getting book-fair treatment.
