  2. Ryan says:

    I’m pretty sure that’s fake πŸ™‚

  3. Robert says:

    LOL, Photoshop much?

  4. Victor says:

    C’mon John let them know the site…

  5. Shocker says:

    Damn, they caught us!

  6. John Chow says:

    Victor – I would have but that site has NSFW items on it. Sorry, but I had to remove your link.

  7. Andy says:

    HaHa – I saw it on Digg today

  8. Michael Kwan says:

    I’d buy it. πŸ™‚

    Potential tagline: Learn from the root of all evil.

  9. Tyler says:

    Nice book, I want one!

    Where is my PS CS2 when I need it!

  10. Tony says:

    You don’t need Photoshop for this. Considering all the talk about “websites”, I figure this can easily be done in PHP.

  11. Hehe John, it can’t touch my recent photochopping post – “read emails while you drive”, and “Google Livestock” πŸ˜‰

    Tis still pretty much the festive season, and time to be more than a little silly I figure!


  12. Stew says:

    I wasn’t sure if it was real or fake (was guessing fake) but I didn’t want to post and look stupid πŸ˜›

  13. Michael Kwan says:

    Then again, I might be more inclined to get that C++ GUI programming guide that PC guy gave to Mac guy…

  14. Pallab says:

    Damn it. It seems url in comments are disabled.

  15. John Wesley says:

    The funny thing is that I wouldn’t put it past John Chow to write for the dummy series.

  16. Tyler says:

    Yea you could use PHP to create the image.

    I use the 2.0 GD Library in PHP to do various cool graphic things actually.

  17. Alex Becker says:

    a book to drool over? lol

  18. I’ve got three on back order πŸ˜‰

  19. Christoph says:

    Will it be an ebook with a 2007 line sales letter page? I assume the price will be $97.00 and will go up to $197.00 very soon?! πŸ˜‰

    Happy New Year.


  20. Tony says:

    Oh btw, if you look carefully, you could see the change in image quality between the original scanned text “A Reference for the Rest of Us!” (kind of blury) and the new generated text “By John Chow” (very sharp)

  21. Ed Lau says:

    It’s a manual on killing baby pandas!

  22. Leftblank says:

    Interesting book, does it come with step-by-step images?

  23. HMTKSteve says:


    Is he holding three chop sticks?

  24. Gdog says:

    Nice one John! I actually published my book yesterday…take a peek:

  25. You got me excited when I read the title. Yes, I’m pretty sure he’s holding three chopsticks.

  26. Nomar says:

    Wow, this is great !! cant wait till i read it πŸ˜€

  27. Tyler says:

    Oh I downloaded my first copy of his book!

    I’ll have to review it and get back to all of you later I suppose πŸ˜‰

  28. aibek says:

    haha, nice one

  29. Had me fooled for a sec. I’d buy it. πŸ™‚


  30. Kenric says:

    At least the picture of the guy looks like him.

  31. Sonia says:

    I take the series name as a compliment. At least you did not publish your book in “Complete Idiot’s Guide” πŸ™‚

    Sonia (aka Vadim Dumin)
    P.S. I suppose REST stands for Representational State Transfer.

  32. alzack says:

    Before I read the comments in this page, I thought you really authored the book….Nice..

  33. Andy says:

    I doubt the “Dummy Series” would ever make a book on “How to Become a Dot Com Mogul”

  34. Jane says:

    Keep me posted when it hits the shelf…bound to be on NY Best Sellers List for sure. πŸ™‚
