Author lays out the story behind why this book came about and the weirdness...one reason he's writing the book is for his reincarnated self 1,000 years from now! The future him won't have to trial and error he can just learn from himself and shortcut.
The section about never writing a book but instead designing and envisioning a book series before you even begin the project is gold. Then the author tells you how to actually get this done. He lays out a complete system for a business to attract new customers in the door and then having them wanting to buy higher dollar products from you.
I highly recommend this book so you get 'r done and avoid secret-itis (which the author defines. Like cancer you don't want to get secret-itis).
When you are doing something creative like blogging, reading, or designing your own beautiful business, any siphoning of creative energy can be fatal to a day's work. Dave argues that you can put this aspect of your life on autopilot. You know that you will need 230 diapers each month for your baby, so why not just get them with a couple of clicks with the mouse? Better yet, you know that you are going to consume bottled water each month, just order in bulk through Amazon Prime. Toothpaste, music, books, or anything that I need to sustain my life or provide me with creative inspiration.
This hack will save you time and effort. Thank you David.
The book is fresh in its style and in its information. He literally leads the reader through an Oz of marvelous postings and possibilities.
He talks about "Book Ecosystems," "Back Ends Devices," and "Plugging in to Your Tribe." Have you ever heard the terms "Eclectic Input," "Event Jacks" and "Review Jacking"? Neither did it, until I read this book, and now I wish I had known about them before. What do they mean? Well, you're just going to have to the read the book to find out.
Great thing too is that his book is a real easy read, despite the foreign terms. It's outlined beautifully in a large free type, with lots of white space interspersed with eye catching headlines, and boxes full of thought jogging information and advice.
Ok, I'll be a little bit more specific.
*For instance" He outlines "Book Chapter Types" with horizontal charts that emphasize an ACTION term on the left, and then ACTION to be taken on the right. For example The term BIAS is in the left column and then to the right a thin blue line separates the term from the explanation. Maybe you have to see it to appreciate it, but the graphic is quite effective in communicating his point.
The chapters are short and the print is large so don't be afraid if I mention Chapter 50 through 70. Some of his best work is in that section. Here he is first talking Taxes and Publishing. Then David Favor moves into "The Daily Do" and "Kung Fu.Read more ›
