So how good is this book, really? I can say this much: my publisher is contractually obligated to provide me with 50 free copies of my book, but I have turned them down because I insist on paying. That's right. This book is so good that even I don't feel worthy of owning a copy that I don't pay for. In fact, the second I finished this book, I deleted the manuscript off my hard drive and made sure the only copy available is safely in the hands of my publisher. I even turned down my author discount, and offered to pay full retail price for the privilege of reading my own book (currently $9.57, which means you'll get a copy for at least $4,990.43 less than my suggested retail price).

Here's what people are saying about "The Alphabet of Manliness:"

-Congressman Jim Cooper indirectly admits that the title of my book is sexier than his.

Legitimately one of the funniest things I've ever read. It will become an instant classic. - Tucker Max [Full review.]

Anyone may review this book, however, to be eligible for a review copy you must meet one or more of the following requirements:

  • You work for a newspaper.
  • You work for the Pulitzer Prize association.
  • You work for a magazine.
  • You work in television.
  • You work in radio broadcasting.
  • You run a popular website.
  • Regarding the last category, what I mean by "popular website," is a site that receives more than 25,000 unique visitors per day. It's not that I don't care if you don't have a hugely popular website... well, it's not just that I don't care, it's that these copies are for review, not for the three or four family members who read your LiveJournal. Please contact Darryl Pierce only if you're able to give the book significant exposure. University newspapers are fine as long as the paper has a beefy readership. Here's a list of people and "publications" that are not eligible:

  • Highschool papers.
  • Email or print newsletters with fewer than 25,000 readers.
  • Clowns.
  • People who work in the media, but aren't in a position to get the book reviewed (i.e., your job is to get coffee, make faxes, drive a van, fluff men or women, etc).
  • Anyone who's read this far and still isn't sure if you're eligible.
