Never has the “Print to PDF” button looked so useful until today. After what feels like a year in fruition, the e-book, book, diary, journal, memoir, or whatever you want to call it is finally released! Although I have been working on this book personally off and on starting end of summer 2009 and through the winter of 2010, the book is finally released today as promised. No delays, no excuses. On time as expected (relative to my time zone of course!)
I have been talking about this book off and on over the past few months, not really giving a strong synopsis of what the book truly is about. I think after you read it now, you can see why it would be hard for me to fully describe it. I am so glad that the book is now done, because now I can focus on other projects.
Yes, that is true. This summer I am looking at the UCC and see what I can do to help grow it and cultivate it. Perhaps do a “Underground Summer School?” 🙂 Anyway, I have another side project that I will reveal sometime this week that will involve the community. If you are able to participate, then I think the end effects will be amazing. We’ll see what happens.
What is the meaning behind the Title? I’ll let Voltaire explain that one, as it was his idea at the last minute. I really wanted to go with a whistle blower idea, but then decided in the end it was not the image or perception I wanted to portray. If you read the book, you will know what I am referring to, hopefully.
I am dead tired right now, but I can’t sleep because I am too excited. I want to thank everyone who is an avid follower of this blog. For those who are new, this book is the result of hard work and dedication to what we love to do here. I will most likely make a promotion video of the book on Youtube, but not tonight. Soon though, I promise. Now its time to rest until tomorrow. 🙂
See Book Overview:
Video will need to be re-made/uploaded since Youtube banned my previous youtube account.

The book is done. Amen. Will another book be created? Ha, only time can tell. Let me finish up the 10 smaller projects before we tackle another huge project. >_>
Sweet now I have something to do tonight that doesn’t involve coding something 🙂
Gonna read it start to finish
Just finished the book, and I think chapter 6 should be required reading for EVERY American! V did a great job of scratching the surface on some things many people don’t know and/or understand, and creating awareness and curiosity will hopefully change the common perception that the mis-educated masses have. This is an excellent read, and I seriously hope people happen upon it…there’s a lot of great information to be learned in this essential guide to understanding the concepts of “The Underground.”
But I can’t access Megaupload from HK. Can you upload it somewhere else, or even better, email it to me when it’s out? Thanks very much.
@Sneakily1: So, finishing the book takes 3 hrs. Thanks for the good estimation info.
For those who can’t get it through MegaUpload, I put it up on The UCC at the following url: http://ucc.torchingigloos.com/undergroundbook.rar
V, I can track the downloads on there too so I’ll give ya updates.
BTW if you’re not already a member of The UCC PLEASE register and participate…especially if you’re using it to download the book. It’s the least you can do to help support Versatile out some more.
Thanks very much!! Reading now.
Oh man, someone already finished reading it, and i’m just downloading it. ;0
Oh by the way, V, Seems like you made it out on time !!
This is amazing guys, great job. I’ll be reading this shortly!
Congratulations to your publication. I am glad to catch a copy to bury oneself in
this great digital work 😀
Added a video. 🙂
I downloaded it, and I’m really enjoying it so far! 🙂
I wrote a post promoting it over on United Tech Guys: http://unitedtechguys.com/2010/06/05/piracy-morals-and-perception-the-underground-book/
