By far the most useful section was Part III where Platt and Truant give tips and advice on how to implement the things that helped their business grow. If that weren’t enough though the last quarter of the book has similar advice and tips from other indy creators. If you are an author with a book on Amazon, Kobo or iBooks then Iterate and Optimize is a must read. Buy it NOW!
The biggest construction site for me, at this time, is my pre-production and production process. And this book has helped me tremendously in understanding what the process is and isn't, and obviously to iterate and optimize the heck out of it. I am deeply thankful to Sean, Johnny, and Dave for their no-bullshit, enthusiastic approach to authorpreneurship (okay, maybe Dave's not enthusiastic, but he's very determined). Their mindset was a truly freeing thing for me to adopt, and helped me strangle that inner bully that always got in my way.
On to writing more, and writing smarter!
This book reminds me of the date who’s taking forever to get ready. You keep yelling, “Hurry up” and they keep responding, “Just five more minutes.” And just when you think you can’t tap your foot any faster, they come out and you’re blown away by what you see and know then it was all worth the wait. Yes, this book took longer than expected, but it was also definitely worth the wait.
There’s so much valuable content, and I recommend reading all of it, even the sections that aren’t relevant to you at the moment. There’s a lot of benefit learning about the detailed steps the authors took to get to where they are today, so you don’t want to miss any of it.
The abundance of actionable advice will easily exceed your expectations, but my biggest takeaway from I&O was the authorpreneurial mindset. Having the right mentality is HUGE, and for that reason, I found this book incredibly inspiring (I loved the section on criticism and changing the way you view it). You’ll find plenty of strategies you can implement now in order to boost your business, but this book is so much more than that. The focus is not just on immediate success but developing a long-term career.
Everything shared within this book can not only take you to the next level, it can also spur you on during those times you feel stuck or convinced the entire world hates you and your writing. Whenever you feel like chucking it all and becoming a hog farm sniffer because at least pigs won’t tell you you suck (no offense to Julie Huss – you can read about it in the interview section), just give this guide another read and it’ll motivate you to get back to the work you truly love.
To sum it up, Iterate and Optimize deserves a place in every author’s tool chest. You can’t go wrong with this one. Well done, guys.
I should also mention that I've followed people like James Clear and Tim Ferriss for years, and they've already pounded the value of iterative improvement and marginal gains into my head. I've also read The Compound Effect which was another great book about iterative improvement. So it very well could be that this book is intended for writers that haven't been exposed to the topic of iterative improvement as often as I have. For that reason, I'm going to give it an additional star because it would've probably helped me a lot more had I not been predisposed to so much of the material beforehand.

Thanks Sterling and Stone.
I'll be honest, this book killed any remote interest in being an indie author or...Read more
