I've added two sample chapters to the related links, the first a few sample workbook pages, and the second is Chapter Two of the overview.
Would you recommend The Product Hunt Manual to a friend?

NOW AVAILABLE AT PRODUCTHUNTBOOK.COM (had to be removed from Payhip in order to join KDP Select) We all know that Product Hunt is the place to launch your startup, but it can be hard to tell why or how a product shoots up the charts. In this ebook I show you how to maximize your performance on Product Hunt by leveraging your network. I’m a long-time user, a big fan of the Product Hunt community, and an avid Hunter. I’m hosting the Central Florida meet-up on Feb 20th (Please come!) Ryan also named me as one of the 30 Hunters with the highest quality hunts in his "2014 in Numbers” Medium post. I’ve tried to simplify the process of rising up the Product Hunt rankings by dividing this ebook into two parts—an explanatory section that goes into theory, and a 15-page workbook, that will help you prepare for your day in the spotlight. There is a sample Chapter to view—I’ve included 4 pages from the workbook, and I think you’ll find them helpful even if you don’t buy the book, so please enjoy. But if you are thinking about buying it, I’d urge you to do so in the next two days, while the Hunter discount code is live. I’ll be watching this feed carefully today, so please let me know if you have any questions!

@kikischirr Well - for a second I regretted reading this post after buying it at full price, but the checklist at the end was worth the $7 in thinking time alone.

@kikischirr Just bought it. Looking forward to the read. Much needed, so many people asking me how to best launch on and leverage PH! As fanboy and official PH Singapore meetup organiser I would love to have a hardcopy version to hand out to friends and fellow PH fans. Anything like that in the pipeline?

@mikedane7 Yeah, I should have reported it as a dead link, I took v. 1 off of Amazon -- shoot me an email: kikischirr@gmail.com and I'll make sure you get a copy of v. 2. :)

This is proof that similar concepts can be born at the same time, but executed differently. Great job @kikischirr!

@dylanfeltus Thanks, Dylan! I saw @mijustin's post and was crest-fallen (because I'd already finished my second draft!) but luckily I had some wonderful friends encourage me to continue...!
Eric Willis@erictwillis · Working on something new
I've read it. Should help people get a better understanding of how to launch a product on PH. Glad you put this together @kikischirr

@erictwillis Thank you, Eric! I appreciate you reading it!
jonas@jnsdls · Yeah, I don't know either.
Bought it, read it, loved it. I got great value out of it (and will definitely be using the workbook for any future launches that involve ProductHunt). You can't go wrong with this book, especially for that price. Bargain. Great job, @kikischirr.

@robertwilliger @Payhip @absfarah I'll track you down and vote! Sorry I missed you the first time around!
Rob Williger@robertwilliger · CEO of Cited, Inc. |Writer|Speaker
@Payhip @kikischirr @absfarah yes, I did see on Product Hunt and did up vote :) after purchasing on it, and hoping to launch my own products soon what I think is really nice is the social features built in.
Misbah Ashraf@misbahspeaks · Product Growth @toymailco
@robertwilliger @Payhip @kikischirr @absfarah Must say, an awesome product building around the payment industry.
Adam Marx@adammarx13 · Freelance writer/editor and music addict
@robertwilliger @Payhip @kikischirr @absfarah This is great, like having a hunt within a hunt. Now I'm curious enough to go check out Payhip exclusively :)
