You'll find a comparison of the various crowdfunding sites, strategies for promotion, how to set up backer rewards and stretch goals to get the most from your campaign, and a lot more.

I found it extremely useful, while some of the information might be a bit dated and I'd recommend it not being your only resource, it's definitely worth a read. [...]

I read this three times before launching my first Kickstarter. Highly useful. My project funded in 7 hours, partly because I had done my homework. And this book was a huge part of that homework. Things do change fast, so I recommend checking out [...]

I bought this for my Entrepreneurship BUS 245 class. I was the only one in class who knew anything about the subject of crowd-funding. This book helped me explain the concept, and we got a chance to get a guest speaker from a new start-up crowd-fundi [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
