FAQs About Business Books
Are there different types of business books?
There are many, including:
- biography/autobiography – the story of a company or business leader
- new ideas – introducing new concepts or reimagining old ones
- from life to business – applying lessons learned in life to business
- from business to life – transferring concepts from business to other aspects of life
- wealth-enhancing ideas – approaches to making money
What if I don’t have a huge concept like Freakonomics?
Few books are based on paradigm-shattering ideas, yet many provide valuable information. Viable concepts include an inside look at an industry or company, a new business-related concept, or a plan for getting ahead in business. A book based on any of these can help you accomplish your business-building goals.
Do business ghostwriters need business degrees or experience in running a business?
Professional ghostwriters specialize in learning on the fly and translating ideas into readable, thought-provoking, interesting books. You’ll certainly want a ghostwriter who understands business, but there’s no need to find one with an MBA or C-suite experience.
Bottom line: will my book be profitable?
There’s no guarantee of financial success in the book business. If your true ambition is to introduce a new concept or present your ideas to the world, earning a profit should not be a primary concern. But if profit is your driving motivation, remember that the media attention and business generated by your book can greatly enhance your revenue – even if the book itself doesn’t make a lot of money.
