Is it ok to use part of popular book title in my ebook?

Hi, I am attempting to write a short free ebook to give to visitors. I am summarising a popular book practises into a condense form about 30-50pages long. Is it ok to use the book title in my squeeze page, book title and etc....? Is there anyway to go about it?

If you waken up to a life your not passionate about, you already have a death sentence. What your excuse now? In this life, you either go for it or hoe for it. I'm goin for mine, what about you?

It's okay to use the book's title if you also reference the book's author. Always do proper referencing and citation when you are using/publishing another author's work.

Tok add to Mary's response, you need to reference both the book and its author on any of the pages that has content taken from the book. Or, if your eBook is a summary of the book then you need to inform the users at the start of the eBook, or at the end that it is so. Include a link to where they can find the book too.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

This is fine as long as you remember to cite references. If you're going to use blocks of text, or you'll take a quote from the book, make sure to make it clear that it is a quote using quotation marks. Else, search engines might think it's duplicate content.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

You can do it just as everyone has said but don't forget to reference the author but in my opinion, i will suggest that you try create your own original title yourself instead of copying from others
