The new site has launched! Check it out: http://executebook.com
Sneak peak inside the book…
We just got our first copies of the book!! After we send in our final approval to the printer, they will ship out the rest of the books. Hoping to get them all before 2013 and ship them immediately! Woo!
Sorry for the delay, but with all the approvals and wait times it takes a little while to get a book printed… even after its been completed :)
Here is a sneak peek! New site coming VERY soon!
The book is done and in the hands of the printer, and I’ve got to say, it’s a beauty! Lots of great things have been happening surrounding the book like hitting #4 on Hacker News yesterday and a new celebrity endorsement from one of my heroes for the front page of the book. (it’s a surprise)
Drew and I absolutely cannot wait to share the book with you and we wanted to thank the hundreds of you who have already pre-ordered your copies!
We’re still taking pre-orders for the moment so please don’t hesitate to grab a copy. You never know what we might do from here:)
“The act of writing this book was a testament to the book itself.”
This morning I wrote an article on the Treehouse blog about how I actually wrote this book in 3 days…
It took us one day longer than we thought, but we’ve done it! We’ve finished Execute and sent it in to the printers! All in just 8 days!
Grab your Pre-Order now, because after today we will no longer be offering the “Deal” that gets you 25% off MediaTemple and one month free of Treehouse.
So go get the book!
There is a lot to be said for the difference between planning for six months, developing for a year, learning that your users don’t want to pay for something, pivoting, starting over on development, and having your investors clean you out, as opposed to launching an open-ended, simple, and small version of a great product in which users tell you exactly what they’re willing to pay for while they’re already paying you.
Today is the day the book will wrap up. Today is the day that we ship the manuscript to the printer. Details are being tweaked, ideas are coming to full fruition, designs are crafted, and edits are working their magic.
This book is something we’re very proud of and we know you will be too. It’s been fun so far and sharing the experience with you has been amazing as well. All of your questions have helped the direction of the book and some of you will even be in the book itself!
Here’s to the final push, and the art of shipping!
Hard to believe I only just met Drew a few weeks ago and today we’ll have completed a book together.
I love the web.
For those concerned with the precise details of what I use to build things, there’s a section in the book just for you :)
