A surf trip from L.A. to Costa Rica is a classic, a free ride, executed by generations of surfers since the sixties.

F*cking Austrians. They ruin everything. Anyway, I mention it because Allan is offering a free Zen and Zero DVD to anyone who forwards our interview (which is always a good read if you haven’t checked it out yet) to twenty friends – just CC firstname.lastname@example.org on the emails and add your mailing address (US only – sorry foreigners).
When you’ve pissed off a lot people in the publishing business, going viral can be a great way to sell a book. Ironically enough, it’s also the reason I have trouble pissing.
