| | An obvious companion to PDSP
While we're all helping Steve decide on a follow-up to PDSP, I think Steve should issue a companion to PDSP. I'm thinking of simply a collection of articles from the website. It's like "Best of stevepavlina.com" but in book form.
It will reach a book-reading market that's different to the internet one, especially now that it's been primed by PDSP. But a lot of website readers eventually print off articles anyway, and this way it's done in a handy, bound format, so I'd expect a market from website fans too.
There'd be very little work to do on it. There is no need to organize the articles beyond grouping them into categories. And Steve has to write an intro. It will be a deliberately 'bitsy' book, but this is an advantage as there is an easy 'digestibility' to a collection of articles, which people can just dip in and out of, as opposed to the carefully through-written book that is PDSP.
Hay House should find it saleable - considering all the website's fame and traffic came about because people wanted these to read these very articles, their appeal is proven.
Yes, there will be some overlap with PDSP but so what and couldn't that be a good thing? Different people respond to different ways of the same thing being expressed.
It won't contribute new knowledge to the world because that knowledge is already on the website, but it will facilitate access to this knowledge. In this way, an anthology of articles does create value.
As I said, it doesn't replace the follow-up book. But while Steve writes that book on Polarity, what about this anthology?
