    FULL DIGITAL PACK WITH AUDIOBOOK: (PDF + audiobook + ePub + mobi). The free PDF version of The Life & Times of a Remarkable Misfit has been downloaded over 100,000 times but lots of people have asked for additional digital formats (epub and mobi.) This level includes PDF + epub + mobi formats PLUS additional Essays AND a high quality recording of the audiobook which I will record in the bus I am using to travel around the world. Pretty good for the first level, huh?

    PERSONAL DELIVERY: Yes, you read that correctly. In addition to EVERYTHING in the first four rewards, I will literally drive to your house and drop off your book. Ever have an author make you that offer? ;) I will also spend at least one hour hanging with you, and brainstorming with you about your next project. I have never, nor will ever offer personal or business coaching as a service. This is a Kickstarter-only reward, and I hope that you will take me up on it. I want to meet as many of the generous souls that believed in me as possible. Of all the rewards, this will be by far the hardest (and most expensive) to deliver, but the one I look forward to the most.

    2 NIGHTS IN MY APARTMENT IN NYC. Yeah, it just went there. In addition to receiving a copy of the digital and print version of the book, the Misfit Pocketbook and 3 Limited Edition Prints, I will let you stay in my badass apartment in the Lower East Side while I'm traveling the world. My apartment has original hand-drawn murals based on the artwork in the book (see pics to the left), and it is the perfect place to plan your very own revolution. I'll even design a map of the East Village & LES for you, with all my favorite spots to plan, write and conspire. +++NOTE: Must book at least two months in advance, and use the reward by October 2013.
