Opening remarks from the best-selling How to Write a Non-fiction Book in 60 Days

When I told them that I had written 11 books and major reports and two comprehensive university courses (Copywriting that Works and The Business Approach to Writing) in under five years, and had written the first draft of each project in about two months, they thought I was telling tall tales. So I set out to show potential authors how they could do what I have done several times over.
