Review: How to Write a Book
Do you want to write a book, but don't know how to get started?
Maybe you think that writing a book is just too hard.
Well, with a little guidance, from the right mentor, you might find out that it's not as difficult as you might think!
Brian Tracy has mentored a lot of people over the years, and mentored them in a lot of subjects. His motivational presentations and materials have helped hundreds of thousands of people achieve their goals...and their dreams.
A while back, Brian Tracy turned his attention to a subject he knows a lot about, how to write a book, and created a valuable training program for those who didn't know how to get the book in their head onto paper...and, into a publisher.
His virtual training course is called, well, maybe not too creatively, "How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author".
But, you get the idea right away, don't you.
Brian Tracy's goal with this four-part virtual training program is to help you take what you already know, and, using the skills you already have (But maybe are NOT aware you have.), write a book AND get it published.
If anybody should know how to do this, Brian Tracy should. After all he's written, and published, more than 65 books, in more than 42 languages, in more than 60 countries. In fact, "How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author", is simply the distillation of all he has learned about writing and publishing books, combined with his knowledge of how to achieve success in ANY field.
His idea was to present the student with a recipe for success, using the same steps that he personally uses each and every time he writes a book. He has divided his training program on how to write a book into four stages which are easy-to-understand, and follow.
Stage 1: Planning Your Book
The first thing to do about your topic What to think about. Who to think about. How to write - including the tools you use. How to make YOUR book stand out from all the others already out there.
Stage 2: Actually Writing Your Book
Beginning even before you actually start writing the book, this stage shows you how to make the writing itself one of the easiest parts of the process. You will learn how to write the book before you start writing, how to plan your chapters, subdivide chapters into topics, and how to make YOUR WORDS jump off the page and practically force themselves into the reader's thoughts. In this part, Brian Tracy will even teach you HOW TO BECOME AN EXPERT in your field, even if you don't know much about it right now.
Stage 3: Editing and Polishing Your Book
Before you begin learning from "How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author", you probably will be of the belief that writing the book is the hardest part. In this stage of training, Brian Tracy shows you how wrong you are. Here he shows you the steps and techniques of editing and, yep, re-writing, as you turn your book into a finished masterpiece.
Stage 4: Marketing and Publishing Your Book
All that work is for nothing if you can't get your book in front of readers...without giving it away. For that, you need to get a publisher to read your book, and publish and promote it. As Brian Tracy points out in his description of "How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author", most writers are broke and starving, but, with his help, you can be rich and famous.
This is a valuable resource for any aspiring author....and maybe even some who have never aspired at all.
