Guy Kawasaki did it again - publishing a great book I mean. I guess he is an entrepreneur at heart who loves to find solutions to problems he has, so this time he tackles the problem of (self)-publishing with "APE: Author, Publisher, Entrepreneur--How to Publish a Book ". And unlike many self help books out there this one written by Guy Kawasaki and Shawn Welch actually gives you insights about the process from all angles - the creative, the business and the promotion aspects of publishing a book on your own. It's filled with screen shots of settings, tools and info graphics that will help you master your publishing venture. But what if you don't want to publish a book? Well I guess you know someone who does - at what is better than a great book to give someone which will help him realize a project like publishing a book.
Last but not least - this book will save you time if you are a designer. Why? Because you don't have to support your friends/acquaintances/clients who are writing a book so heavily.
Guy Kawasaki's Books are great to give to someone - Enchanted has become a standard gift to my clients to educate them about social media. This book will become the gift "de rigeur" if I hear someone talking about writing a book - and it gave me obviously the base to know what to do if I want to start such a venture.
