Here is the impressive list of all the 21 books at your convenience.
- Cashvertising by Drew Eric Whitman
This little book has packed in a lot of information in it. All the concepts and techniques are very well explained, in simple English. Don’t get overwhelmed by the number of techniques, the writer has presented a great checklist at the end of the book that acts as a ready reckoner.
The book has missed the following points.
1. How to find clients for your copywriting business?
2. How much to charge them?
But I think first you should perfect the art, practice writing by hand many times, then go looking for clients.
The author has also given a list of books to be read further. Overall, this book is 10x worth the money.

Short book, easy to read. A few good insights – nothing earth shattering but well worth the read. I like the philosophy of trying to build something really special, memorable and share-worthy.
11.All Marketers are Storytellers by Seth Godin
This was a quick and insightful read! In typical Godin writing style, he explains through example and storytelling how the business situations of today are asking not for commoditization and efficiency, but depth and personalization. Customers need a story to tell themselves in order to spend more on a product that is likely available cheaper somewhere else. Although I agree with many critiques noting that Godin’s ideas may not be new in the business world, his delivery provides a much richer experience in learning about them.
