"I stayed up all night and read your book. I tossed a book I have been working on for months and started from scratch--following your process and using all my previous research. I started writing this morning following the guidelines in your book and am off to a great start." - Lynda Morris, Being The Best - Business Owner & Employee Adviser & Coach
“This book is a must-read for budding authors. Paul breaks down the unwieldy task of writing a book into manageable chunks. He also includes fun pre-writing exercises such as freefall, clustering and brainstorming that separate the left side and right sides of the brain. He teaches us that, by doing so, we actually become better writers and editors.” - Grace Cherian, Professional Copywriter
"You take, what is to most people, a big, hairy, scary project and break it down into a process that seems almost mundane in its simplicity. All of a sudden writing a book is possible." - Angie Gallop, author of The PWAC Guide to Roughing it in the Market
"I was struggling to find a book that simply sets out how to write a non-fiction book. I wanted a methodology that is proven to work, and I have found it in Paul's excellent book. Paul takes the best techniques out there (freefall/stream of consciousness writing, clustering/mind mapping) and integrates them into a logical system that is easy to follow. I am now on my way to getting my first draft together and I can see light at the end of the tunnel. My writing project has become less fearful thanks to Paul." - James Foucar
"60 Days is encouraging and positive and would allow someone who has good writing skills to believe that they could in fact write a book. It gives a clear and concise listing of the tasks needed to write a book, and then provides the tools needed to complete the tasks." - Johanna Bertin M.S.W., R.S.W., medical social worker and freelance writer/author
"I am in the midst of writing my second book and How To Write A Non-Fiction Book In 60 Days gave me a serious energy boost. I have been a bit intimidated by the thought of writing a 75,000-word book and reading your book has given me the tools I need to complete it. Our techniques are similar, but yours have obviously been developed and fine-tuned and they really helped me!" - Heather Cook, author of Rookie Reiner (due out in Fall 2008 from Trafalgar Square Books) and The Green Stable
