We’ve been lobbying for “funner” to be a new word. So much so we made a website to help it along. Visit www.makefunneraword.com to cast your vote and support.

Read/Write Web thinks it should have been “facebook”.

I also agree with ParisLemon. Do you know anyone who has ever used the word Facebook in a sentence? No you don’t, c’mon.

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    ‘Funner’ as in ‘more fun’? I thought that was a legit word? ;)
