There are many mind-boggling and complicated ways of writing a book at our disposal. This is not one of those. In fact, this book is perfect for someone who wants a simple, flexible, and streamlined approach to start, write, and complete a book fast. This is not a get rich quick book, nor is it a book that guarantees your success. That is up to you. I can't write your book for you.
This book is for those of us who want to write regardless of what others say about our ability to write. It is for those of us who want a step-by-step guide to the process and strategies to finishing a book. The book is specially formulated to be a tool to support your success. If you want to avoid mistakes and prevent costly pitfalls, whether those pitfalls be measured in time and/or money wasted, then this book is for you. This book is all about achieving real and practical writing results.
You will only become a writer/author through the act of writing. This is your golden opportunity to stop talking about writing a book and actually do it. Only when your book is finished will you truly understand the authority and respect authorship demands and how the title of "author" can open up new channels of achievement and profit. You might find this book to be somewhat unconventional. There may be established writers who disagree with my writing style.
That is to be expected since I do not come from the traditional writing world. You will soon learn my story and though I was an overall good student, I was a terrible English student. I know this might sound cliché, but if I can become an established writer, anyone can! More than most people, I understand your concerns, anxieties and questions when it comes to writing. I've been where you are and know how to overcome the roadblocks you undoubtedly will encounter.

Surprisingly Useful

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I've gone back and listened to it again, as well.

Any additional comments?

I am a professional writer of nonfiction, and have been thinking about writing a book, so this book was part of my research. I have to admit that I had a bit of an arrogant attitude going in... I wasn't convinced that the author could tell me something that I didn't already know. Turns out, he could. There is a lot of very basic information that I think beginning writers would benefit from. But I found that his advice on organizing and planning a book -- such as writing a core outline first, so that you have a definite handle on what your book is about and how you're going to write it -- rang true with me. In criticism, I would say that the author repeats himself occasionally throughout the book. But, then, maybe a beginning writer would benefit from the repetition. Finally, I liked the way he encouraged non-writers to try their hand at the craft, with helpful tips on how to get started. The author definitely has a positive attitude!

A very bad listen, don't waste your money

What would have made How to Write a Book ASAP better?

I'm shocked by the good reviews, but maybe this book is their first on the subject. The author admits this is his 3rd book. His first 2 books you never heard of because they have sold few copies, check their poor sales rank on Amazon. This book is filled with amateur writing errors and then he plugs his high priced courses on "writing" constantly. Ever watch American Idol? Would you pay to learn how to sing from a karaoke singer?

Has How to Write a Book ASAP turned you off from other books in this genre?

It hasn't, I read enough books to know there is always good and bad work, especially now that there is "self publishing", but self publishing and places like CreateSpace, KDL and Audible good for the business overall. Buyers just need to be more careful now.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Hard to tell, he was dealt a bad hand (the book is littered with cliches too). For instance "your book" was said about a thousand times. It seemed it was in every paragraph and sometimes in 3 or 4 sentences in a row. If you combined a drinking game with the phrase you wouldn't get past the first few pages.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes, it had an ending and I now have true example of what all the other books on how to write, warned about.

Any additional comments?

Just a question, will books like this lead to LOTS of 2am karaoke quality books?
