Authority outlines everything you need to do to get past just thinking about writing a book. It can absolutely change your life, so long as you put in the work and actually follow through.
After reading Authority, I successfully self-published a book on designing HTML Email (modernhtmlemail.com). On top of the financial incentives of writing a book, it helped me land my dream job. I couldn't be happier.
While I think I probably could have written and launched a book without Authority, I would have been stumbling in the dark and I doubt I'd have accomplished what I did by following Nathan's plan of attack. He definitely knows what he's talking about.
If you're thinking about self-publishing, Authority is a no-brainer.
Authority is an absolutely VITAL resource to writing and successfully marketing your book. This book answers all my questions on how I could take my expertise and turn it into a successful book. Authority outlines concrete, real-world action steps you can use TODAY. This book covers everything from finding your topic, writing the material, to the physical ergonomics of your writing environment. Perhaps most importantly, Authority provides an outline for proven marketing strategies that will guide your pre-launch and launch activities.
This book has been an invaluable resource to me as I am working on my first book. I'm not sure how much this material translates to a fiction work, but I can say Nathan Barry's Authority is a must-have for authors thinking of writing a non-fiction work.
