Naturalismo has no involvement with Jim Abbott. We are keeping his words below as his final statement on the issue. Natuarlismo is keeping this post in place to provide a forum to discuss strategies for resolving the situation. If we deleted this post, everyone would be left in the dark, including others who might potentially lose money if not for the informational warnings contained in the thread below.
For the time being, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK until it is absolutely clear that it has been published and being distributed through reputable retailers. That is our final word on the subject. We apologize for any inconvenience our post has caused, but we do not take any responsibility for whomever is witholding the book and any funds received for it. Thank you.
From Jim Abbott:
Hi. I am Jim Abbott and there are some posts on the Naturalismo site referring to a book I am writing, sort of. The posts are inferring that I was selling the book or some such and that people were bilked by myself. I was notified about this again today by a friend.
Here is the deal:
I was and am writing a book about my friend Jackson. It is not finished.
Someone posted a blurb somewhere saying they were me and were selling “my” book for an unknown amount of money. It was not me. My book is not finished. Apparently a couple of people sent someone the money and now are angry. I can’t blame them. It was not, however, me that posted any blurb.
I am requesting that the whole blog thing be removed because shit is coming back to me that I don’t deserve or need. I will gladly look into it if I know more about the details. I have requested that people send me any info about it so I can find out the truth but I don’t have time for this nonsense. Thanks
Jim Abbott (The real one)
