How to Write and Self-publish your book & Turn it into a #1 Best-seller

Updated: Sep 13, 2022


In the last years, many people have asked me about my book: People Skills for Analytical Thinkers. I finally took the time to sit down and write down answers to the most frequent questions.

Writing a book was hard. It never seemed to end. However, when I had the first copy of the book in my hand, I realized: “This is the most rewarding thing I’ve done in my professional life.”

I hope this article will inspire you to write a book yourself, help you move closer to publishing, or reach more readers with your book.

I’ll share my experiences in 4 steps:

1. Ideation

2. Writing

3. Publishing

4. Marketing

How did you decide to write a book, what was the inspiration and what tipped you “over the edge” into action?

It's December 2019. I'm doing a hike in New Zealand.

One person I meet is Katharina. A German psychologist.

We have a pleasant talk. No surprises yet. But then, everything changes.

We speak about writing.

I tell her I've been writing online.

She asks me if she can read my latest piece.
