Writing a book takes a ton of effort .. for Martyn Cook, when he calculated just how many words it takes to fill 300 pages it was almost a deal breaker - and that was without even considering just how LONG it takes too! But when he figured out how to create a highly rated e-commerce book, without writing a single word, leveraging "dead time" that he had in his day - it was game on!

On this episode of I’m That Geek Web-TV show Martyn walks us through:

  • Why writing a book is absolutely needed in today’s "Age of the Guru"
  • How he wrote a 300 page book, without actually writing a single word
  • How to "write" a chapter with just 3-5 simple bullet points
  • How he used "dead time" in his day to churn out chapter after chapter
  • How he attracted the world-famous Kevin Harrington as his foreword
  • How he continues to sell and ship books through a simple funnel that's "always on" and much more!

He’s even giving you a link to claim a free copy of his book so you can see exactly what the end product and every step of his funnel looks like! He’s holding nothing back - You have everything to gain!
