How to Self-Publish a Best Seller by James Altucher

How to Self-Publish a Bestseller: Publishing 3.0

My most recent book, “Choose Yourself!” sold 53,000 copies since it’s release on June 3 [update December 30 – just hit over 100,000 copies], hit the Wall Street Journal Bestseller list, was No. 1 on Amazon for all non-fiction books for a few days and is still flirting with No. 1 in its various categories.

Publishing a book is not just putting your thoughts on a blog post. It’s an event. It shows your best curated thoughts and it shows customers, clients, investors, friends and lovers what the most important things on your mind are right now.
