What is the average number of words per chapter in a non-fiction book?


Answer by  patti (29325)

There is no average number of words in a chapter. Sections of a specific book are all about the same length. The length should be sufficient to cover the material.


Answer by  Duncan (1124)

Chapter length can vary depending on the purposes of the author. For things like memoirs and autobiographies, the length is going to be a bitter longer, on the order of 5,000 words or so. Text-book type non-fiction books will be shorter, and the length will be tied to the topic.
