Posted by Eric Ries (Creator)

This has been an enormously rewarding, fun (hectic!), and educational experience. I cannot thank you enough for all of your support over these past 30 days (and beyond).

Throughout this process, your feedback has helped us shape the direction of the campaign and has contributed in significant ways to its success. Together, we’ve created a community of nearly 10,000 people who will be sharing their experiences and learning from one another (myself included). I can’t wait to get started.

I also wanted to thank my team for all their incredible hard work and dedication to making this campaign a success.

Details on the delivery of rewards to come soon. But for now, please accept my deepest thanks.

      I've no feel for whether $588K is a great return to a publishing company and author on a successful business book, but I should reckon it is, given the original goal you had set. Congratulations! I'm looking forward to learning from the community here and seeing how the book comes together. Thanks for the opportunity.

      Looking forward to the book as much as the next backer here. But the community aspect you introduced here is amazing. I can't wait to connect with others following the same path

      Eric, thanks for taking this approach to raising funds and awareness for your new book and rallying a community around it. I'm happy to be participating in this validation exercise and will share this example with my clients and the tech community I co-founded called Silicon Halton.
