Several of us toyed around with the idea, but Brandon pretty much ended that when he tossed it out there for free. Don’t get me wrong, I greatly respect his decision to do that. One of the ideas I had was to simply part it out, post it publicly then use portions of the chapters as conversation starts on this site. Its probably actually not needed now that everyone can just download it.
As far as re-packaging it, here were the challenges and issues from my perspective:
-The marketing was spearheaded by Brandon’s eccentric personality, and rebellion against expensive toys.
-What was fun and hilarious about parts of this book, were also absurd and could be borderline offensive to some thin-skinned people. (For example, the part about punching whales in their penis’. Penis’s? Penni?? What the fuck is the plural of penis?).
-Instructional resources like this, have heavily moved toward video blog, subscription based training sites, and other experimental forms of viral marketed click-bait tutorials (here’s 5 useful pointers on how to choose a vocal mic!

I’d be curious to see what happened when you removed the fluff! Haha!! Since it’s open source, upload your edited PDF…or if you don’t want to, tell us how many pages your reduced it to. lol. Funny.
I too felt there was meaningful content in it, if anything, because of how much I learned from it when I was first reaching out to whoever wherever to get help getting better at this stuff.
