Yeah! The Crankypm Book Project reached its funding goal.
Hi everyone, thanks for backing the CrankyPM's book project!
The Cranky Product Manager is completely flabbergasted that you all contributed over $5000 within 5 days. WOW!
So, IT'S ON. The Cranky PM has already started writing/outlining, etc.
The Kickstarter project stays open and able to accept new contributions for another 40 days, until September 9. Tell your friends to get over here and contribute. So they can get acknowledged in the book and get free stuff like wicked awesome mugs and unbelievably choice T-shirts.
Don't you worry, all contributions beyond the original $5000 will be put directly to use in making this book. The more money raised, the better it will be. I'll be able to spend more on editors , comic artists, and on upgrading the production of the book.
Thanks again for your support!
ETA for the book: February, 2013.

The Cranky Product Manager will call your boss/co-worker/colleague/mom/spouse and let him/her know that YOU, in fact, are NOT the Cranky Product Manager. So they can stop accusing you over and over. Or alternatively, the Cranky PM will just call you and we can have a nice chat for a bit. Plus the book in both its physical and electronic incarnations, and acknowledgement listing as a "Wicked Awesome Product Manager".Estimated delivery:

You can be fully anonymized or go full monty. CAVEAT: your story must actually be funny/cranky, or she might take artistic liberties to make it that way.Estimated delivery:

Half-page ad in the back of the book. You know how your high school yearbook had a bunch of ads in the back? Same idea here. Advertise your consulting firm, your training firm, your software for product managers, your eternal love for the Agile Church of Development, whatever, ... in a 1/2 page advertisement, to be found in the back of the book. Black & white, graphics are okay.Estimated delivery:
