Pre-Paid Legal Story
Submitter: Here’s my question: What do you do when you come across a book that is nothing but an advertisement for a pyramid sche– I mean, a multi-level mar– that is to say, a network marketing opportunity? I just feel books like these are flying under false pretenses. I’d like to know your (and your readers’) thoughts.
Holly: I’ll take this stance: We owe it to our patrons to provide them with a well-rounded collection. We do not have to agree or promote anything in our collections. We do have to teach people to use and evaluate information, and that includes books about pyramid sche-, um…”network marketing opportunities.” (Nicely put, submitter!) We offer books on various religions and various viewpoints on social issues. My problem with these two books is that they are old. Quixtar is now Amway Global. I’ve never actually heard of Pre-Paid Legal Services, but any book about law or legal services should be kept current. This one is ten years old.
