There is an inherent ambiguity in the how not to expression. It can mean how to avoid mistakes when doing something or how to avoid doing it at all. Generally, the ambiguity is resolved by the context of the expression, so in the OP's example, it will be interpreted as the former. Whereas:
- This article will advise you on how not to get pregnant
will be interpreted as the latter; namely, how to avoid getting pregnant at all, not how to avoid mistakes when getting pregant. Conversely:
- This article will advise you how not to ask for a raise
will be interpreted as how to avoid mistakes when asking for a raise, not as how to avoid asking for a raise at all.
- This article will advise you how not to react to provocation.
could have either of the two meanings.
