Niceguy, the lead author, is a U.S. expatriate living in Japan with his family. He travels the world and enjoys life in his spare time. Beginning life as a small blog on the World Wide Web, Niceguy's writings about his experiences struck a chord with men across the globe, garnering a dedicated readership, and the idea of producing a book was born. As such, Land of the Losers' contributing editors and proofreaders are fans of Niceguy's original writings who wished to see his stories committed to print. They are spread across Australia, Canada and the United States. Illustrations were provided by Bobby.N, who resides in Australia.
