Many people have enjoyed reading self-help books but when it comes to writing one, they don’t know where to begin. How do you organize the material? How do you structure a self-help-book so that you take your reader on a journey from a problem, which has been conveyed in the book’s title and subtitle combination, to a solution?

Watch my video and  then take out your favorite self-help book and look at the contents page. Does it have the structure I’ve outlined here? Does it have a variation it? How many chapters are dedicated to each of the sections of the book? Does it help you get a sense of how much space you will need to cover the history of the problem the reader is having and how many chapters you will need to cover special circumstances that not all readers will face?
