Episode #908 of Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to

When I think about business books… from writing one to the ideas within them, to how the business of writing book works, I think of Josh Bernoff. His latest book, Build a Better Business Book – How to Plan, Write, and Promote a Book That Matters, highlights his deep understanding of the intricate process of crafting impactful business literature, and how to make it successful. His approach is direct, and uniquely hands-on. He dives deep into the creation phase, assisting authors in rapidly defining their book idea and finding the perfect title and subtitle, delivering a one-page book treatment that sets the foundation for their project. His service extends to creating compelling book proposals, including everything from a captivating opening to a detailed promotion plan, ensuring that the manuscript appeals to both publishers and readers. Book projects on which he collaborated have generated more than $20 million for their authors. Before this gig, Josh spent twenty years as the Senior Vice President, Idea Development at Forrester, where he analyzed technology and business. At Forrester (and with co-author, Charlene Li), he published the Businessweek bestseller Groundswell – Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies. He has authored, coauthored, or ghostwritten eight business books, including Writing Without Bullshit – Boost Your Career by Saying What You Mean. Prior to Forrester, Josh spent fourteen years in start-up companies in the Boston area. Now, he works closely with nonfiction authors as an advisor, coach, editor, or ghostwriter. He has collaborated on more than 50 nonfiction books. Josh writes a blog post on topics of interest to authors every weekday. Enjoy the conversation…
