Seeking successful types of fun business books? There are many hundreds of — perhaps 1,000(!) — successful business book types, including over a dozen fun types.

One of the most important decisions an executive makes about their book is its type. That’s because a book’s type and topic so heavily influence the resulting business growth. A type determines a book’s structural framework, point of view and voice. And success-bound executive authors spend significant time and energy deciding the type — or fusion of types — for their book.

We’ve identified 700+ proven business-building book types. And our 18-step Spark Ultimate Book Start System (complete with worksheets) will help you decide which to choose. Plus we reveal titles of two real-world examples of each — and the ones that often require less writing* — in our 2022 multi-award-winning, groundbreaking family of printed and digital workbooks. This excerpt from 666 Book Types For Building Your Business & Brand reveals a few of the fun types for your book.
