Is there a difference between “Hot Not to Bomb” and “How to Not Bomb”?

Which phrase is better, I asked my colleague Paul Stregevsky? He replied as follows:

Grammatically, of course, both are fine. They mean the same thing. It’s just a matter of where to place the emphasis.

Nine out of 10 professional writers would probably prefer “how not to bomb”; it seems to call more attention to “not.”
