Writing Nonfiction: Turning Thoughts into Books

Writing Nonfiction: Turning Thoughts into Books - Dan Poynter Poynter offers some good advice for those wanting to (self)publish. But, these advice is more related to the process of how to choose a topic for a book, how to find a cover photo/blurb writers etc In that sense "Writing Nonfiction: Turning thoughts into books" is not about writing (although he suggest that you can write a nonfiction volume in less than a month [!?]) but the preparation to write. And if this book is any proof, his other 119 books (yes, he said somewhere at the beginning that he wrote 120 books; online it also mentions some 700 articles) won't get my attention in the next few decades.
