Help me find this old book
I'm recalling this old book that I always wanted to add to my collection.
It's apparently harder to find than I remember.

The book is a somewhat tongue-in-cheek guide on writing a number #1 hit. The summary has something about not getting rich or famous, but having a #1 nonetheless.

I thought it was called "How to write a #1 hit" but I haven't been able to find it.

The cover is white with an incomplete pyramid similar to the US dollar bill in the lower corner.

Anyone remember this and what it's called?

You're looking for "The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way)" by musical anarchists Cauty/Drummond of KLF fame.
