Do You Really Want to Write a
Wonder if you really can write a book? A book that
carries your unique message you want the world to know? A
book that sustains your interest for several years? A book
that returns ten-fold the time, money and love you put into
When San Diego Gas and Electric hired me to teach
speedreading to their executive secretaries, I knew I had to
produce a book for them. Ten years teaching speedreading and
much research helped. I didn't have a computer, but since
they hired me and paid a healthy sum, and gave me a deadline
I got busy and wrote my first book Beyond Speedreading. I
followed advice from a marketing wizard who said, "do what
you do best and hire the rest." I then hired a woman to
input my book and hired a printer. It's still a strong
seller today. I even wrote three memory books without Dan
Poynter, best-selling author of The Self-Publishing Manual.
I'd probably be a millionaire if I had read his book first,
although I did sell 85,000 copies of my 20 plus self-help
and writing books. If these books hadn't sold well I had the
adventure of being completely engaged in my life purpose of
helping people live a life of passion! Writing a book is
always a win-win!

FAQ: How do I know my Book will
You can test your book's significance by asking: Is it
relevant? Does it present useful information? Does it have
the potential to positively affect people's lives? Is it
lively, humorous? Does it help answer important questions?
Does it create a deeper understanding of human nature? It
takes only two significances to write a book, three for a
best-seller. So be inspired and start writing that book.
