Switch excerpt in Fast Company

The February issue of Fast Company — with Steve Nash on the cover — has an extended excerpt from Switch. The spread in the magazine looks beautiful, but if a FC magazine isn’t handy, you can read it online.

Cheaper by the Chapter

The iTunes model has hit publishing. Our publisher, Random House, is selling individual chapters out of books. And Made to Stick is the guinea pig for this noble experiment. The chapters are priced at $2.99 each. Check out the WSJ article on the launch or go directly to the commerce site and load up your basket with chapters.
