Link roundup

1. Chris Simms recommends several excellent, but less famous Batman comics.

2. Penelope Trunk shows how to sell books:

If you buy 10 books, I’ll work with you on the phone to rewrite your resume or provide an hour of coaching.

If you buy 100 books, I’ll fly to wherever you are and speak, or do a workshop or hang out with you – whatever you want.

I’d really like to speak at a high school. I’ve done it before and it’s a blast. So if you buy books for all the kids in a high school, I’ll spend two days there inspiring the kids to think bigger about what makes a good life for them – one day speaking and one day meeting with students.
3. Another Last Exit to Nowhere t-shirt giveaway.


  1. What's your experience with Penelope Trunk? Can I believe any of this?

    In a casual skim of the website I honestly can't tell whether you're poking a bit of fun at her weirdo self-promotion gimmick or honestly enthused.
    (why is there no sarcasm font in today's age of typography loving blog-o-holics?)

    Who amongst us couldn't use an honest, no BS, more direct bit of advice on how to "...get ahead in the new economy...."

  2. No sarcasm. I'm not saying I'd date her. She is very good at self promotion.
