Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced Friday that Lehrer's "How We Decide" was being taken "off sale." Spokeswoman Lori Glazer says the decision followed an internal review, but she didn't elaborate.
The book was originally published in 2009.
The 31-year-old Lehrer had been a popular author and speaker specializing in books and essays about how the mind works. But he has also been criticized for sloppy scholarship and faulty reasoning and has admitted recycling his own journalism for separate publications.
During a recent speech in Miami, he blamed himself for "arrogance" and "carelessness" and expressed hope he could revive his career.
