 How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author is a product by Brian Tracy that he says will teach users how to get a book published in four steps.

What does the product offer?

How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author comes across a 4 part virtual training course comprising 5 CD’s, a DVD and a workbook. The information contained within draws heavily on the knowledge of Brian Tracy, a well-known author and public speaker on sales. As well as the main course there are 6 bonus CD’s and DVD’s from Brian Tracy that tie into How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author.

How does the product work?

How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author is all about breaking down the steps involved in writing a book and then showing users how to handle each of these steps by breaking it down further. The methodology involved doesn’t really bring anything to the table that a hard working author won’t have already researched though.

What is the initial investment?

How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author isn’t cheap with Brian Tracy making it available for a one off payment of $497. If after the first module but before the second starts you are unhappy with How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author users can apply for a refund.

What is the rate of return?

Brian Tracy claims that publishers will often pay tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in advances for a book.

Conclusion

There is a lot of merit to How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author and to dismiss it out of hand would be naïve. The problem for me lies in so much as anybody who has a real interest in authoring a book will already have a pretty good idea about most of what is involved. That isn’t to say that there isn’t a lot of stuff to take away, I’m just not convinced there is almost $500 of information there.

If this were less I would probably not hesitate to recommend it but when you think of the 4 main modules being Planning Your Book, Writing a Book, Editing and Organising and finally Marketing and Publishing, it becomes clearer why most of the target audience for this product are not going to find value.
