Why do non-fiction authors need a Book Proposal?

A Book Proposal is a marketing tool required by non-fiction book authors to acquire a literary agent or sell their book idea to a Publisher. Having one is necessary for all first-time authors, since virtually all non-fiction books are sold via a book proposal. In fact, a proposal is so important, most agents and publishers will not even look at your book or book idea without one! In addition, many books are rejected solely because of a poorly written book proposal.
