Amazon.com has removed a controversial book from its listings, a book well known for angering the Church of Scientology.

A Piece of Blue Sky, by UK writer Jon Atack, is an exposé of the Scientology movement from its creation in 1959 until the death of founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1986. The book disappeared from Amazon's site only recently.
