As a person always looking for new ways to generate writing topics and ideas, I'm always on the hunt for more resources. As one of the first titles I downloaded on my Kindle Fire, this one was full of many ideas that I had not considered before and the book also took advantage of one of the major features of eBooks: providing links to other resources on the web, which is perfect for a book of this nature.

Although the book is geared toward self-publishing audiences, any writer can benefit from the tips and techniques discussed within it. Thomson provides spot-on advice for writers about selecting topics to write about, how to identify possible trends that might be an excellent opportunity for writing and publishing a book, and how to tap into your own interests and experiences to find content.

I particularly like the Quick Idea Formula; Slant Your Book Ideas for Success, and Questions to Ask Yourself About Book Ideas sections in the book. The Appendix with all of the links to other resources is worth the $.99 price alone.

So why is the book only 4 stars instead of 5? A couple of reasons: First, the book is ambitious, too ambitious and it starts moving beyond the premise on the cover of generating non-fiction book ideas and spills into details about the writing process and the publishing business which is good information, but it feels rushed and incomplete, as if the writer combined content from 2 or 3 books into this one book.

As a result the flow of the book is somewhat chaotic and in several places becomes repetitive, often repeating the exact same phrasing from earlier in the book. The book could use a massive developmental overhaul to eliminate these redundant sections and maybe reorganize the sections to help improve the overall flow of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! So many great ideas! December 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book. Its strength lies in its ability to get a writer thinking creatively. It's a fast but enjoyable read. The ideas you generate as you are reading are exciting. The book has so many great links to online resources. The author sticks to the topic and doesn't try to overtly sell his own materials. This book will continue to be a great reference as I chart my way into self-publishing territory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Resource for Nonfiction Ideas! August 2, 2012
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a must have for any writer that wishes to come up with good nonfiction
book ideas that will have the best chance of selling. The techniques in this book
could also be used for coming up blog post ideas and other forms of nonfiction. I love
the price and the fact that you can pick up the book and flip to a page to get a new
technique. Yes, this also makes it a good bathroom reader. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional value, everyone should own this! October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This e-book is an exceptional value, and every ebook writer or publisher needs to own this! The low price is misleading -- the author over-delivers on the subject matter. Every author who reads this will earn their money back by a hundredfold using just one good idea out of the dozens and dozens of ideas here. And this guide is packed with them. The author's writing style is upbeat, positive, concise, the subject matter is current, and the formatting of the content is excellent. There is no reason in the world a writer will ever have to struggle for topics to write about when they invest less than the price of a cup of coffee in "How to Create Nonfiction Book Ideas That Sell." Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing earth shattering here August 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A mixture of tips. While a few were decent and more than common knowledge, many of the 150 great ideas were on the level of "watch TV get ideas" "Read blogs get ideas"

This is certainly not a horrible effort and for 99 cents, nothing I would go seeking a refund for, but take the value with a grain of salt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocked. SHOCKED! November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was absolutely shocked at how many examples there were to help one get ideas for what to write about. If you just want to write, but don't know what you want to write about, this book has literally hundreds of ideas, and it guides you through the process of getting your book published. Great read, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Can I get a Print copy of this book? October 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is worth its weight in gold... (right now, that is only Kindle electrons, but I wish it was in a paper book.) Does anybody know how I can print out a Kindle book? This book is FULL of links that I had never seen before, which I am sure can help me... to write and/or publish a book...

For example... I didn't know I can find a Best Seller list of books from 1900 to 1995... How's THAT for a useful link?

I didn't know there is a place where I can hire many persons to do small tasks for as little as 1 penny per task... How's THAT for a useful link (for example, if you want to compile a directory of telephone numbers in a certain area, and you want somebody else to verify hundreds of addresses...)

Did you know there is a phone number you can call to get a very important Book seller's sales figures for a book? You want to know how many books on Dinosaurs sold, and how many books for "lizards" sold? I had no idea I could find this kind of information, but now I know I can.

Where can you get thousands of free U.S. Government books? I didn't know this... I learned it in this book... They are all in the public domain. I wouldn't duplicate them, but there is nothing wrong with LEARNING from them. I downloaded an extremely interesting book on Wind Power... free... I learned a lot, and I could perhaps decide to write a book about this... (or ask somebody else to write it for me...)

I could go on and on, with more examples, but there are many other reasons besides great links why this book will help me, and I highly recommend it for anybody who wants to write a book... non-fiction, and probably also fiction...
