    A pithy volume reminiscent of one of my favorite writing books, "No Plot, No Problem," How to Write a Non-Fiction Book in 60 Days is light-hearted but delivers what it promises. It offers sage advice and helpful exercises, not on the craft of writing, but on the actual writing itself. For someone like me who has read a lot about, and taken courses on, how to write a book (both fiction and non-fiction), it is the perfect, useful reminder.

It offers sage advice and helpful exercises, not on the craft of writing, but on the actual writing itself. For someone like me who has read a lot about, and taken courses on, how to write a book (both fiction and non-fiction), it is the perfect, useful reminder. Some of the exercises Paul Lima suggests include "free-fall" writing and clustering and outlining. I admit I skipped the "free-fall" exercises in Chapter 2 since I had already done those before and I'm not currently wanting to write a non-fiction book, but I think it is an invaluable exercise to do. I also found the self-referential example of using clustering-outlining for the topic of outlining to be delightfully surreal. Perhaps the book may need to be a bit more detailed for someone just starting out, but the information and format is perfect for this stage in my life. I also think this book would be equally useful to any student who needs to write a paper for school; one can certainly tackle a research paper in the same way. I will be having my 13 year old read it next to prepare him for all the term papers he'll be writing. :)

    Paul Lima’s latest book, How to Write a Non-Fiction Book in 60 Days is an energizing, realistic self-help guide perfect for novice through experienced writers. Lima’s no-nonsense techniques and experience take you from thought to first draft, presented with his usual fluid writing. Not a fan of self-help books, and being primarily a writer of fiction, I found myself nodding in agreement with all his processes. If you’re a writer, or thinking of writing a book, go now and acquire this wee gem.

    Excellent book. The author did a great job providing a straight-forward, simple step-by-step process for writing a book in a short amount of time. This book's "self-published" look will probably turn off many potential readers from consuming its great content. I think an update to a more professional looking cover would help this book compete better in the market place. Excellent book.

    Picked this one up as an ebook on a whim a few months ago. Despite the somewhat amateurish look and feel, it was actually a very useful book for me. Pulled my engineering mind comfortably into writing techniques like freefall and directed freefall that have proved useful far beyond simply writing my own book.

    This is a really useful book for anyone planning to write a non fiction book, I have been writing my life story for the last two years without getting very far. I found the chapter on clusters very useful and will go back to my writing with renewed enthusiasm.

    If you are writing a nonfiction "how to" book this is probably very helpful, but if you are writing a memoir it doesn't fit. If you are writing a nonfiction "how to" book this is probably very helpful, but if you are writing a memoir it doesn't fit.
