Hey friend! The book is 'Long Story Short.' https://www.amazon.com/NieR-Automata-Long-Story-Short/dp/197470162X
This book is very similar to Nier Automata’s story.
For now only in Japanese, English release is slated for October.
I'm not the person you replied to but I got it from here and I assume this is what he meant also.

Both are kinda like the book that came out for Nier Gestalt and Replicant (I WANT to say Grimoir Nier but I might be remembering wrong) where they both include series of short stories in the universe.
Yup, October 9.
NieR:Automata: Long Story Short, Vol. 1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/197470162X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_4J55BbDQ0CZ74
For those who don't know what this book is:
This is a novelization of the game with some additional content. It was originally released in August 2017 and has been partly fan-translated not long after.
The English translation is done by the unknown people of VIZ who probably just bought the license and isn't connected to Square Enix (which is not even mentioned on the store page).
Thus the quality of the translation/localization is very debatable and it is advised to take it with a grain of salt until someone who've read the original can comment on it.
The "Vol.1" in the title, as well as the title itself, are most likely a localization choice to promote the next book which comes out in 2019.
The book is available on Amazon.
Here's the ones I've either bought or want. They're all official:
Grimoire Nier (Japanese only). There's fan translations on the web of this: https://www.amazon.com/GRIMOIRE-Project-Gestalt-Replicant-Japanese/dp/4048686712/
Drakengard 3 art book and guide (Japanese only). https://www.amazon.com/dp/4048660861/
Nier Automata world guide volume 1 (English). I suppose there might be a volume 2 coming in the future: https://www.amazon.com/NieR-Automata-World-Guide-1/dp/150671031X/
And for the poorly-translated novels. Get only if you're not irritated by bad sentence structure, typos, and translation errors.
