5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had this Book a Year Ago May 20 2013
By Daniel Dwyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have other directories, but this one is so tangible. It gives you a good feel for each agent's likes and dislikes and their relationships with publishers. Now I can search for agents whose market and contacts are looking for the kind of books I'm writing. It should save me a lot of time, but hopefully, put me in touch with someone who is looking for my book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of Time and Money Jan. 27 2014
By Margaret E. Schwarz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Why spend $25 for a book that is not updated? Three query letters were returned to me because the agent moved, merged or went out of business. Sure it happens, but after checking online, I discovered the one agent most appealing to me had moved in 2009. This book is dated 2013. Herman is riding on a prior good rating and obviously resting on his laurels. For this reason, most of my hard work preparing query letters tailored to his outdated specifications, was nothing more than a waste of time. Sad, when you are trying your hardest to get a book published for a terminally ill client .

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it. June 6 2013
By Sean - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Thorough and inlaid with little equivocation, Jeff Herman's guide must be considered one of the most all encompassing guides on the seemingly bewildering world of pursuing publication. There's a lot to get through in this book, but the chapters of essays were accessible and informative.
