[We ended up selling more than three a minute. You guys are so cool. We had a few counter problems, but it didn't effect the number we sold…they're all gone, 800 in total, and I won't be able to sell any more. Thank you for the energy and support!]
It seems as though the Apple tablet is unlikely to be ready in time for the holidays… what to get?
How about a boxed (a wooden box) set of five of my books? Very limited (only 800 will be sold, ever). Sold at a discount from retail, with cool packaging, assembled by elves, delivered by Martians, blessed by enlightened goats.
My goal was to make a rare item, even if it doesn’t make any money. More and more, I’m thinking of books as artifacts and souvenirs, as convenient and collectible packages for ideas that spread. I’m hoping that for a few hundred people, this boxed set will be an example of that.
The set includes Tribes, The Dip and Meatball Sundae. Also included is the fancy new Purple Cow (new because it includes twenty more pages of user-suggested purple cows) and the extra-fancy new All Marketers are Liars (new because it has a new cover–a better cover, actually, more on that later–and a new foreword).
If you want to buy any of the books individually (no box), use the links you can find here.
If you’ve read some or all of these before, even better! What would make a happier gift for the clueless marketer in your life?
The details are here, so be sure to read the fine print.
I’m sorry if they sell out before you get there, but first come first served seemed like a fair way to handle it. Remember, one per customer! If you pay for more than one, we'll donate extra payments to charity.
Thanks for reading and have fun!
