Having read the Createspace and Kindle Masterclass, some of that book's content made it into this one. That's okay - the advice is solid and makes you really think that you should cut the BS out - no facebook, twitter etc until you have done your word count.

There are some good tips in this book. Geared more for writers of 'info' and 'how to' non-fiction. Describes methods of organization and planning to increase daily word count and, hence, productivity.

Some sections will likely be unhelpful for some readers. For example, the author has a section on computer keyboards and later a section on how to stay healthy to maximize productivity. The most helpful parts for me were the sections on fitting in the actual typing within everything else going on i
