FRIENDLY AMBITIOUS NERD is a book by @visakanv about becoming a kinder, more ambitious and more curious version of yourself. The material is drawn from 10+ years worth of blogging, tweeting, extensive private and public conversations.

Inside are riffs about creativity, taste, marriage, relationships, Internet culture, community-building, masculinity, dealing with assholes, aesthetics, book and movie recommendations and general nerd-ing out about how to have a good time as a human being on the Internet. 


v1.0 is currently available.

v1.1 will be released sometime in 2021 – everybody who purchased v1.0 will also receive v1.1 as well. (By the way, when you get v1.0, you'll find a passage that says "I'll ship v1.1 soon." Please disregard that.)
