It’s a rare, but fun giveaway day here at Man Vs. Debt!
I’ve done these every now and then, but nothing like you’ll find today… Today I’m giving away the remaining books in my own collection – all of them.
And they are good ones, too.
There are 15 different real-life, tree-killin’, bonafide book-books.
I’m going to pick one winner to get them ALL. That’s right, I’m going to personally pack and ship all of them to a single lucky winner. Whoo-hoo!
There are several ways to enter, which you can read about my scrolling down below. Each entry is weighed the same, but you’ll get chances to enter up to four times. :-)
I’ll pick a winner at 8:00 am EST on Dec. 14th and post the update here.
UPDATE: A winner has been selected! See the video below for the process of selecting a winner:
First, though… the awesome line-up:
What You Win: All 15 Books…
Never Get A Real Job by Scott Gerber
The book is hot of the press and getting a lot of buzz in entrepreneur and blogging circles. I’m new to Scott, but I love his straight-forward, no nonsense advice and approach. The book’s subtitle is awesome: How to Dump your Boss, Build a Business, and Not Go Broke.
The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau
You all know how big of a fan I am of Chris Guillebeau. I have one non-personal copy of Chris’ blockbuster book left and I’m throwing it in. Chris and his writing have had a more positive impact on my business and life than any other source. Plus, we are featured in Chapter 8! :-)
Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh
Tony is the guy behind the amazing company Zappos, which I got to tour when I was in Las Vegas for BlogWorld. The company and it’s people have amazing stories and are world-renowned for their unbelievable customer services (think ordering pizzas and sending flowers to people… crazy stuff).
The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin
Gretchen Rubin is one of those people you always hear good thing about – in fact, I’ve never heard anything that wasn’t raving about her! We’ve only met once – for about 3 seconds – thanks to Glen Stansberry, however I’m plotting behind the scenes to meet her soon (no, not stalking… planning…). Did I mention the book is a NYT Best Seller?
Unclutter Your Life in One Week by Erin Rooney Doland
Erin runs the wildly popular blog Unclutterer and has written this great resource for de-cluttering and organizing. Both the book and her blog was a great resource – not only for us personally – but in helping inspire the guides Sell Your Crap.
eBay for Dummies by Marsha Collier
The title of this book is self-explanatory and along with the book below it were used as research assistants when I was putting together Sell Your Crap. This book is actually very helpful.
Complete Idiot’s Guide to Making Money with Craigslist by Skip Press
This book was another I got as a reference when compiling Sell Your Crap - however, unlike eBay for Dummies – I found this little to any help. I wasn’t really impressed at all and wasn’t able to use almost any to help my purposes. Free is free, though – and it may be able to assist you better.
Privacy Means Profit by John D. Sileo
This was a book I was sent for free that I actually held onto to read myself. I never got the time to dig in, but it looks very compelling. It appears to be a very factual and action based book on how to prevent and deal with identity theft – a topic we can all use a little knowledge on.
Your Money: The Missing Manual by J.D. Roth
Finally back to a book I do love and adore! :-) J.D. is the founder and editor of the insanely huge blog Get Rich Slowly. Many of you knew I staff wrote for GRS for a year recently. If there was one person I would turn to for well-rounded personal finance advice myself – it would be J.D. – no joke, he knows his stuff.
Personal Investing: The Missing Manual by Bonnie Biafore
This book is by the same publisher and in the same series as J.D. Roth’s book, however I haven’t dug into this one myself. The great people over at O’Reilly sent it to me. If it’s even close to the caliber of J.D.’s writing, it’ll be a worthy read though!
How to Be Rich and Happy by John P Strelecky and Tim Brownson
This is a book co-written by Tim Brownson, who I occasionally admit in public is a friend – and who may have helped coach me for a period of time. All kidding aside, Tim is a great guy – and this book is actually signed by John AND Tim (with a message to me). Despite that awesome signature, I know Tim would wan’t me to pass it along so that others could benefit.
The Skinny On: The Art of Persuasion by Jim Randel
The Skinny On book series – which I’ve given away here before – are tiny, quick books that feature stick figure drawings. At first this sounds a little amateur, until you realize the advice and presentation are top-notch. There are no frills, just straight, fun advice on a wide variety of topics. In the case, persuasion!
The Skinny On: Networking by Jim Randel
One of my favorite of all the Skinny On series, this short guide is on networking genuinely!
A Whole New Mind by Daniel Pink
Another book in which I’m in love with the subtitle: “Why Right-Brainers Will Rule The Future”. My mother turned me onto Daniel Pink and his books and I read this one a plane trip. He has a compelling voice and very complete writing skills – reminds me of the few Malcolm Gladwell books I’ve read (which is a huge compliment).
Drive by Daniel Pink
I’m only about half way done with this second Daniel Pink book, but will make a point to finish it by the time I have to send out all these books to the winner. This title focuses all around motivation – a topic I’m really enjoying!
