    The Washington: Thanks for your support! Any help is greatly appreciated, and if a dollar is what you want to throw down, go for it. Pledging at any level will allow you to stay updated through...well, updates.

    The Jefferson: Pretty much the same story as the Washington, but for those who want to feel they did twice as much (for the same outcome).

    The Lincoln: This gets you the e-book version of the book when it's finished, for use on your e-reader. Since you're getting in early on this I'll also send you a .pdf version for use on other, non-eBook electronic book like things.

    The Jackson: Same as the Hamilton, but I will also (digitally) include a short note or personalization on your pdf to make it unique for you. I'll try to accommodate reasonable requests, and come up with something random if you don't.

    The Alexander Jackson (or Andrew Hamilton): You'll get what's in the Jackson, but I'll also include a (perhaps poorly done) doodle or sketch or something of the like on your pdf. Again, reasonable requests will be accommodated to the best of my (rather poor) ability.

    The Benjamin (The Long Con): This is for folks who think that maybe someday something that I've done will be worth some money or something. In addition to everything in The Grant backer level, I will also make you a physical paper copy of the book when complete. It might not be particularly pretty (most likely paperback, probably made somewhere like FedEx office, etc), though I'll try to make it look as nice as possible. I'll also sign, number, and personalize it (notes, doodles, etc) to you, and there will only be 50 of these first kickstarter edition that will be made.

    The Double Benjamin (Type I:The Idea-Man): This is for folks who have some statistical questions on their mind. In addition to everything at The (single) Benjamin level, I'll work with you to answer a statistical question as a post on the blog, which I'll co-credit you on. Nothing crazy, but the sort of stuff that you might see in a normal post. If you have questions, or feel like backing at this level, it might be best to send me a message first to run your idea past me.

    The Double Benjamin (Type II: The Lazy Blogger): This is for folks who have their own pieces of the internets, but want a week (or regular cycle) off. In addition to getting everything in The (single) Benjamin level, I'll write a blog post or whatever for your website or whatever, on a topic of my choice but fitting with your style/focus. Again, if you're thinking about this level you might want to send me a message first to run your website past me, as website will be subject to my approval.

    The McKinley (The Showman): So you want a nice book? You'll get everything in The Grant backer level, but instead of the cheaply put together book of the Benjamin level I'll put together something nicer for you. Hardcover, etc. I'll try to make it look really quite nice. Signed, numbered, personalized, etc. Something worthy of a nice place on a shelf.

    The Cleveland (The Altruistic Benefactor): If anyone successfully pledges at this level, I'll make an audio book version of the book (i.e. mp3 files), and distribute it freely to everyone at the $20 level and up.

    Those who pledge at this level will get everything in the McKinley level, and they'll get the audio book. A lot of other people will also get the audio book, too, though.

    What's stranger than the first person who pledges at this level? The second.

    The Madison (The Collector): $5,000? Why are you pledging this much money on something like this? You'll get everything in the McKinley, but I'll also make you nice physical copies (signed, numbered, personalized, etc) of any of the books that get made as a result of stretch goals (delivery dates will be widely variable). If stretch goals go crazy you could end up with a lot of books. (Note that you do not get any books made as a result of the $10,000 pledge level).

    The Salmon P. Chase (The Completionist): So, you want to drop $10,000 on this for some reason? You'll get everything in the Madison, plus I'll let you pick another set of movies (within reason and subject to my approval - aim for similar in scope to what you see in the stretch goals) which I'll write a series of posts about and put together the corresponding e-book for. I'll also make you a nice physical copy of that book, which will not be available to any other backers. If the stretch goals haven't all been met at the end of the campaign you can also choose one of the series outlined in those as your choice. Delivery date will be widely variable, mostly dependent on how many other rewards have been met. If you're even *considering* pledging at this level I'd suggest you send me a message first to chat about it.
