This book is a glorious breath of fresh air. He honestly covers the facts, the methods and the attitudes that have worked for the authors he's worked with. These are not the cheapest or easiest methods to try and he's honest about that. Both he's also clear on the reasons and logic behind why these approaches are worthwhile in the long term.
It's a short, well written book - I read it in about an hour. Most of what I feel is regret I couldn't have read this a decade ago when I began writing books.
Having read Michael Hyatt's excellent and comprehensive book Platform, I was skeptical that this book would offer anything new, but I was delighted to find Grohl's advice to be substantive, fresh, and insightful.
The book is particularly helpful in sorting through the conflicting popular wisdom around social media and email marketing for traditional books.
Highly recommended for anyone looking to build a platform.
I like the author's Connection System which consists of four parts: Permission - Content - Outreach - Sell. The author puts everything in a very methodical and systematic way of executing the book marketing process.
Also, the author highlights an interesting point about social media which is exactly what I am thinking. Many people over-emphasized on social media as the end to a means. What a social media should be, it should be a means to an end. Social media is a merely tool for the author to use to boost his platform. The main platform of an author should still be his EMAILING LIST. The author would explain the great importance of having an EMAILING LIST as the way to build your follower base.
The author also quotes from many real-life dealings with authors. Every author has their fears and misconceptions when it comes to certain part of the book marketing process. Things like "Is it harmful to share too much free content on my blog?" "I don't want to appear too hard-sell on my readers" The author does a good job in quelling those legitimate fears, which I'm sure you would have them too if you are an author.
Overall, a highly recommended book on book marketing that is written with the intention to help authors and also based on real-life experiences. It would help you to see book marketing as a fun and exciting process if you see it from the right perspective.
So why then did I need to read it?
Like many authors, I work hard to engage readers, but I am really not good at making sales.
Your First 1000 Copies lays out a roadmap to building an author platform that leads naturally to sales and outlines when and how to ask readers to buy. The book has forced me to rethink the time I spend on many of my platform activities and to spend more time tracking results instead of getting caught up in meaningless numbers.
Starting today I will refocus my efforts in a significant way and I have Tim to thank for the time saved.
Highly recommended reading for any author.

I think I may have to write a 2nd book after reading this. Lord knows I could have used it for my first one. Thanks Tim!
