- Angie Gallop, author of The PWAC Guide to Roughing it in the Market
I was struggling to find a book that simply sets out how to write a non-fiction book. I wanted a methodology that is proven to work, and I have found it in Paul's excellent book. Paul takes the best techniques out there (freefall/stream of consciousness writing, clustering/mind mapping) and integrates them into a logical system that is easy to follow. I am now on my way to getting my first draft together and I can see light at the end of the tunnel. My writing project has become less fearful thanks to Paul.
- James Foucar
"I stayed up all night and read your book. I tossed a book I have been working on for months and started from scratch--following your process and using all my previous research. I started writing this morning following the guidelines in your book and am off to a great start."
- Lynda Morris, Employee Adviser & Coach
“This book is a must-read for budding authors. Paul breaks down the unwieldy task of writing a book into manageable chunks. He also includes fun pre-writing exercises such as freefall, clustering and brainstorming that separate the left side and right sides of the brain. He teaches us that, by doing so, we actually become better writers and editors.”
- Grace Cherian, Copywriter
