One day, many years ago, a reader spontaneously sent me $100 by PayPal because “a few short paragraphs on your website just saved me from wasting hundreds on an irrelevant therapy.”
“Wow!” I thought. “I should probably encourage that kind of thing.”
I have been publishing best-of-breed articles for almost 20 years now, with the same idealistic priorities the whole time:
- rigorous referencing
- detailed but readable
- update everything forever
- clean, simple design
- no ads or subscription popups
- dad jokes as needed
If you like those values, please buy a book (maybe as a gift if you don’t need one yourself), or make a direct donation with one of the buttons below. And of course social media shares are always appreciated too, and good quality links on your blog are even better.
Paying in your own (non-USD) currency is always cheaper! My prices are set slightly lower than current exchange rates, but most cards charge extra for conversion.
Example: as a Canadian, if I pay $19.95 USD, my credit card converts it at a high rate and charges me $26.58 CAD. But if I select Canadian dollars here, I pay only $24.95 CAD.
Why so different? If you pay in United States dollars (USD), your credit card will convert the USD price to your card’s native currency, but the card companies often charge too much for conversion — it’s a way for them to make a little extra money, of course. So I offer my customers prices converted at slightly better than the current rate.
Hey, big spender!

The payment buttons above are for credit card payments, but you can also tip any amount via PayPal, or make it a monthly donation.
