Klutz was incorporated in 1977 by three friends from Stanford University. They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags. John Cassidy, the English major of the group, put the instructions in book form and titled it Juggling for the Complete Klutz.

"It really was a failed scam," explains Cassidy, who remains the creative force of the company. "Our dream was to do a book on juggling, sell a bazillion in a couple of days, buy an island and retire. After a year of steady, unspectacular sales, we found ourselves staring down the barrel of a career."

Today, how-to books from Klutz come packaged with the tools of their trade (from juggling cubes to face paints), and are designed for doing, not just reading. "We think people learn best through their hands, nose, feet, mouth and ears. Then their eyes," Cassidy says.
