Threadless co-founder Jake Nickell'sThreadless: Ten Years of T-shirts from the World's Most Inspiring Online Design Community is just what you'd want in a history of one of the Internet's most consistently interesting and creative commercial endeavors. Threadless has an astonishing story to tell -- a story about business and community co-existing and even thriving, a story about naive entrepreneurs who were able to iterate quickly using the power of the Internet to get it right, a story about art and fun and creativity. The Threadless book is a treat -- more informative than an artbook, less boring than a Harvard Business Review case-study, a sweet-spot between commercialism and passion, like the site itself --Cory Doctorow
