Raise your hand if you’ve ever bought a book based on the title. If you have, don’t be embarrassed. I can’t see you, anyway. 🙂
I’ll admit I’ve done it. I’ve bought books based on titles and blurbs. I’ll see a book entitled such that it holds the promise of a secret and think, “Oh, goody! A solution.”
Here’s the sobering truth. I’ve read these books, but I can’t remember what they said. In fact, I probably spent 90 percent of the time either skimming through extraneous verbiage or nodding along while reading information I already knew.
There are few exceptions to this phenomenon. So few, the titles have slipped my mind.
So, before you buy a book on anything else based on the title, sleep on it. Check out the sample chapters (which may or may not be representative) and, if you’re still interested, give it a shot.
Here’s a video tutorial that can also save you a little dough. 🙂
Plus, a copy of the planner I made in the video. Just click here to download the PDF! 🙂
