In 2011 the publisher of Guy Kawasaki's New York Times bestseller, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies of the book. Because of this experience, Guy self-published his next book, What the Plus! and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process. As Steve Jobs said, 'There must be a better way.' With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, Guy wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: When a self-publisher successfully fills three roles--author, publisher and entrepreneur--the potential benefits are greater than with traditional publishing.

Excellent guide for the self-published author. I keep my copy within arm's reach.

Very informative, only issue is with his pushing the reader to buy the software he is involved with. Other than that, it's a very entertaining, informative and encouraging book!
