The Kickstarter Handbook

So you want to produce a short film. Or design a new line of jewelry. Or manufacture a revolutionary solar-powered garden sprinkler.

There's just one catch: You need $100,000 to finance your dreams, and your checking account has barely enough to cover next month's rent.

Enter Kickstarter - a phenomenal "crowdfunding" website launched in 2009 that brings venture capital to the masses. On Kickstarter, it's not uncommon for folks to raise $50,000, $100,000, $250,000, or even (the all-time record to date) $942,578!

Jokes Every Man Should Know

Why are most joke books so terrible? Why do they always resort to the same tired stereotypes, awful puns, and contrived situations?

Answer: Because good jokes-really good jokes-are as rare as precious gems. Writer and humorist Don Steinberg was not interested in compiling a thousand gags into a giant paperback, because he knew most of the content would be dreck. Instead, he set out to compile the very best of the best, the cream of the crop, the Jokes Every Man Should Know.
