When most people sit down to write a book, they expect it will take months to complete the job. They envision working endlessly and toiling over every word until they finally emerge a year or two later with their finished "masterpiece."
Well, that may hold true for traditional authors, but the power of the Internet makes it possible for more innovative authors to not only create books with compelling content, but to do it faster and easier than most ever dreamed possible.
Texas psychologist, Michael Wolf, Ph.D., represents a new breed of author who sees technology not only as a way to bypass traditional publishing and distribution channels that take years to bring books to market, but use the Internet to actually gather the main content for his book.
Understanding that many authors write in a vacuum about things that only seem relevant in their own lives, Dr. Wolf decided to let his audience help him write his books by sharing their specific stories with him through the Internet.
His book series, called "One Lesson Learned," is currently in development at www.onelessonlearned.com.
These encouraging instructional books will contain personal stories from ordinary people who share an important lesson learned from their own life-changing experiences. These books will give both readers and contributors a chance to connect and make a positive impact on each others' lives.
Unlike the popular "Chicken Soup For the Soul" book series which often focuses strictly on inspirational stories, the "One Lesson Learned" series will concentrate specifically on how one person's lesson learned can impact the lives of others in specific ways.
As a practicing psychologist, Dr. Wolf figured out what your grandmother knew all along: the hardest lessons learned usually represent the best lessons to share with others so they don't make the same mistakes.
Most people will experience an event or develop a personal insight that changes their lives forever, though they often don't realize the impact until years later. Unfortunately, the jewels of wisdom contained in those stories usually never extend beyond the individuals involved.
Dr. Wolf hopes to preserve this knowledge through his "One Lesson Learned" book series.
His inspiration comes mainly through his own 20 years of helping people make positive changes in their own lives by discovering and using their own life lessons. He also recognized the healing power of sharing these lessons with others, not only for the reader, but also for the storyteller.
Gathering content through the Internet makes it possible for individuals from all walks of life around the world to share their stories and make a positive difference in the lives of others.
In effect, Dr. Wolf has created a virtual campfire around which we can all sit and gain hard-won knowledge from each other, much the same way our ancestors did before life got so complicated.
