Okay, not to be greedy or anything… *grin* … but… can a man order the signed copy from this website, AND get a free copy of the “Man’s Guide to the Holidays” e-book? That’d be truly ideal!

Many thanks,

Nothing wrong with being greedy for extra manliness. You can definitely get a free Holiday Guide if you buy a signed copy from the site…..but the Monday deadline still applies.

I’m a poor college student, haven’t been able to get it yet. But soon!

@ Brett “We hadn’t planned on their being such a large demand for signed copies so we didn’t have a plan in place to fulfill this request.”

“Man up” on the self-esteem, willya? Come on, you knew we’d be there.

@ Brett “Nothing wrong with being greedy for extra manliness. You can definitely get a free Holiday Guide if you buy a signed copy from the site…..but the Monday deadline still applies.”

Done! You should be receiving my PayPal order even as I write.

I’m assuming the $3.50 shipping is only for domestic orders. What options have we got for ordering a signed copy from overseas? I’m in Australia.

Good stuff guys. I’m still going to hold off for a bit (all my money is tied up in a term deposit at the moment) but the book is on my Amazon shopping list. :-)

I ordered mine and put a good review of it on Amazon. I’m happy to do my part Brett. Thanks.

I ordered the book on Amazon a few days ago. I was unaware that there was an extra offer in place when I ordered.

I just wanted to know do I qualify for that?
Or do I need to cancel and reorder through the site?
(Due to the deadline I would really prefer if someone could back to me on this today if possible.)

P.S. I ordered on the 9th.

Never mind, I found the answer.

Please disregard the above post.

Order 3 copies for Christmas presents. One for my son-in-law, one for my son, and one for that inevitable Christmas party with Dirty Santa Game I’ll be forced to attend. Keep up the good work.

12 Brett McKay October 12, 2009 at 5:04 pm

Awesome, OkieRover. Thanks for much. And nothing says Dirty Santa like the Art of Manliness.

Damn, I should have waited…$3.50 would be a lot cheaper than the shipping I had to pay…that’s international, right Brett? ;)

The postman just through in my copy of the book. Pretty damn fast for shipping it to Germany.
I only took a first look since I’m very busy right now, but I have to say it looks great. Really. Love the cover art and cannot wait to immerse myself into your book.

Very great job.

@Micheal: What was the answer? I ordered that book by the deadline as well and have not received anything letting me know how to get the Holiday ebook. Anyone else have any info on that?

Just received it. Looks great! Thanks!
