google books preview is showing unproofed old version of book. Can it be taken down?

I started a project a few months ago. I received my proof book and came back here with the revisions.


I forgot the old email address and the password I used to create the old book.


I would like the old book cancelled.


I'm really horiffied that the old book was somehow picked up by Google books, mistakes and all, even though I never approved it. Can it be taken down, asap?

    If Google published the usual 20-page sample - a free advertisement - you must have approved it. Just go to "my projects", and retire the wrong edition.
  • I didn't approve it.


    I still needed to proofread the final copy of the book.


    Can someone help me remove it from google books please?



  • Without the old email address, I am afraid I cannot assist you.


    You should submit a support case with as much information as you can remember about the project / account. Someone there, with more access than me should be able to track down the old account for you.

    I mean you may have inadvertently clicked on the Google button. It happens because it is big and green.
