About the Author

Tom Nardone is the creator of the popular website extremepumpkins.com. He lives in Michigan with his long-suffering wife and their three children, where he runs an internet company.

More About the Author

My name is Tom Nardone, I've a semi-pro humorist. During the day I run a successful Internet company called PriveCo (we own and operate Vibrators.com, ShopInPrivate.com, and Bachelorette.com), but at night I like to goof around, build things, and write funny stuff.

I've written 7 books, three were published traditionally and were nationwide best sellers, the others are available only digitally here at Amazon.com.

I've appeared on a number of TV shows for my creativity, pranks, and outrageous pumpkin carving. My crowning achievement was when I appeared on Conan O'Brien. Conan called me "A Sick Man, A Great Man, But A Sick Man". I also pranked Jimmy Kimmel on one of my appearances on the Regis and Kelley show. Kimmel wasn't as impressed with me. He declared "You should not be allowed near children." I'm proud of that.

I live in the suburbs of Detroit with my 3 children and wonderful wife.

Customer Reviews

The book has great pictures and instructions.
Boudica
Provides wonderful ideas for creating very funny, creative pumpkins that are sure to impress teenage boys and horrify the neighborhood association.
Bonnie Lugosch
I really enjoyed the "homemade" feel of this book.

Not only has this book enabled me to hold onto my position as the neighborhood maniac, it has given me new insight on how to carve pumpkins more efficiently, spookily, and with greater ease. Mr. Nardone is quite the cut up, and this book made me chuckle unendingly. The directions are simple, the layout is handy, and I find the photographs both detailed and quite artistic.
p.s. This book is also quite inexpensive, so buying multiples of it doesn't pinch my pocketbook! Yowza!

This is the most creative, creepy and hilarious example of the pumpkin carving art ever published. We pay homage by stealing Tom's ideas: imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, right? If only we could wield a reciprocating saw with the same artistic precision.

If you are looking to take your pumpkin carving to the next level - away from the boring triangle eyes and teeth cutouts, this one is for you. I really liked the creative designs and ideas with how to's and pointers. For example, I never would have thought using a Dremel or jig saw on a pumpkin until reading this. Using the Dremel this year, carving was a snap with smooth lines along the template. Lots of compliments fmo teh neighbors on this year's pumpkins.

This book is entertaining, hilarious, and is guaranteed to equally disturb your neighbors and make you a legend among the neighborhood kids come Halloween. Easy instructions to make one of the many bizzare pumpkins illustrated or to "take creative wing" and scare the bejeebers out of the neighbors! Put the fun back into Halloween-this book will show you how!!!

Great book with great "how-tos" suggestions and great visuals. I cant wait to put some of these ideas into practice. Im not the creative type but I cant seem to stop carving pumpkins.

My grandkids, ages 12 and 8, loved the photographs of diabolical, ghoulish pumpkins and carved several to scare local trick-or-treaters.

This book is fantastically introduces pumpkin carving in all its strangeness and creativity. It is wonderfully photographed with ideas to build upon and be inspired by. This is a great pumpkin carver's handbook. The best part is, it doesn't just have to be for halloween!
