How to write a very readable nonfiction book for an under 35 audience?

I am interested in writing a non-fiction book or two (possibly ebooks) in a proven popular style. Where can I find resources, reviews, interviews, commentaries about choosing book structures, layout, language, tone and content that appeal to an aspirational audience?

I don't expect this to be extremely popular. There are a few groups of people I have access to that I would want to promote it to mostly to assist them. But I do want it to be very readable, attention-holding and informative like say, Nassim Taleb's Black Swan and similar books were. The target audience might be youngish people (18-35) considering whether to move into self-employment. Interviews, lessons, observations would be the main content.
Also open to any info about how a successful nonfiction author went about starting and then developing the book over time. Thanks.
