Three things about my new book...


1. I just got the first copy off the press. I actually hopped over to my office at 4 am to pick it up. That new book smell is still irresistible! The book has completely exceeded all my hopes, both in the pre-order responses and in how it came out. To those that have already ordered, thank you. We ship starting tomorrow.

2.It's about leaping and connection and the tension that comes from saying, "this might work" and "this might not work" at the same time. It's in full color and it we start shipping pre-orders tomorrow, Nov 24.

3. Thanks to many of you, it's already a bestseller. 

I'm putting in the post-shipping pricing this week, but wanted to give you a heads up before I do. Use the discount code EarlySupporter to save 10% on a three pack.

Have a wonderful holiday.


It's been a year and a half...


For most of you, the updates have been coming on my daily blog ( but I've been surprised to discover that various filters, mail services and other evil entities have made it hard for some of you to keep up...

Inspired by the success of the Kickstarter we did together, I'm launching a new book ( aimed at maximizing the spread of ideas from person to person. The pre-order discount ends tomorrow (Thursday) and I wanted to be sure you knew about it, since in many ways, it was your idea.

Thanks for the ruckus you make!


Welcome to week two, post-launch!

First, and most of all, thank you to each of you. The positive comments, word of mouth and heartfelt stories of real change have been extraordinary, and they mean the world to me. You guys are worth writing for. Thank you.

After the first week hoopla, a book settles into a glide path that determines whether it's going to reach the audience it was intended for. And that's where you come in. If Icarus (or V is...) resonated with you, will you share it? Either hand over your copy or send someone to a store or online to pick one up... If you email twenty people you care about, that will have a huge impact.

The affirmative act of sharing from reader to reader is the #1 way that books get sold and ideas spread.

Here's a simple link:

Keep making a ruckus, guys. And thanks.
