If you want the people who you are targeting to read it, you can't insult them in the title. You need to get their attention without offending them before they've even read it.

When I started writing my blog, I wanted something that would get some more open-minded believers to read it, I could've called it "the Bible is full of crap" which it is, or "how stupid do you have to be to believe this." But I thought that pointing out that rational thinking, and looking at the bible rationally would be likely to make people who have some belief at least a little interested, and I was right, initially. Now, however, they've realised that I'm not going to fall for it, as they thought I would, once I'd read it, they don't bother to read my posts anymore, and my readership has dropped.

You have to look out for that one. If you want to gather readers. Just a little advice from my own experience.

I like the idea of your book Hack. And nice that you're asking for ideas.
