One way would be to use the article.cls, which has no chapter, and
use \section instead. But if you really need to use the book.cls, you
can renew the pertinent lines of book.cls in your preamble; for example:

\renewcommand\chapter{%
%\if at openright\cleardoublepage\else\clearpage\fi % <-- Comment
out or delete this line
\thispagestyle{plain}%
\global\@topnum\z@%
\@afterindentfalse%
\secdef\@chapter\@schapter%
}

Best,

Axel
