About your Book

Avoid catchy titles that readers will not find when searching online or titles which may mislead readers to another topic. Utilize main keywords when creating a title and note that only 50 characters are displayed in most search results.

What are the main topics? Why are they important/relevant? What problem do you set out to solve? Max. 3000 characters including spaces.
