Crowd Fails to Fund How-To Book On Crowdfunding

Ouch, this had to be embarrassing. I guess we won't be buying this guy's "how-to" book. eek!

Call the book: "Crowdfunding: a Guide to What Works and Why." Seek $35,000 on Kickstarter. And stand back to watch the crowd opens its wallet. One problem: The crowdfunding crowd this time wasn't funding ... at least not enough. After launching his solicitation on July 6, veteran technology writer and would-be how-to author Glenn Fleishman was forced to pull the plug 17 days later after garnering just under $4,000 in pledges.
