Okay, I'm writing a self-help book for young adults in the 18 to 21 range. It's based on anecdotes and things from my life. Just a bunch of pearls of wisdom from a 23 year old who's seen and done some sh** in his time. My question is this; how long are such books? I know that some guides and self help books are the little tiny pocket-book variety. How many words are such things? I guess a more important question is this; does it matter? "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is a more mature and sober variety and it is some 230 pages or so, granted they are relatively small pages.
