A helpful guide but a little outdated. There are better books now that publishing's gone through a major shift.

Recommends it for: anytone trying to sell a nonfiction book
OK, I'll start with the caveat: This is a how-to book written by a woman who writes relationship books. That said, she KNOWS marketing. This is the best book -- about a bunch that I've read -- about how to write a nonfiction book proposal and how to market your writing. It's very well-organized and cuts right to the chase.
Leslie Monroe
Still had good valid points. I loved the example proposal at the end. Was a good read and informative.
Beverly
A great book for any writer who is looking to publish a book.
Dave Cullen
