Anna David speaks about how to build authority by publishing a book.


Launching a book is, according to 48 Laws of Power author Robert Greene, “the royal path to any kind of success you want in life.”

So why does the average book sell 300 copies and not change the life of the author whatsoever? 

It’s because the average author is playing by rules set up to make them fail, rather than creating a book that will build their authority, attract clients and change their lives.

Anna David is out to change that. The New York Times bestselling author of eight books has witnessed many book flops: mostly her own. Then she started her own publishing company and learned that the key to book success was knowing your why, drilling down on a sub-niche, making sure you’re attracting the right readers, doing your research and not allowing yourself to be a victim of expert blindness.

In this informative, entertaining talk, David breaks down her simple formula for crafting the authority-building book, delving into why she wrote a book about prostitution, how to effectively tell people to not give a f*ck and how the right book can turn you, overnight, into an authority.
