HASH(0xa60d9f9c) out of 5 stars Waste of Time and Money Jan. 27 2014
By Muggsie - Published on
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 For this reason, most of my hard work preparing query letters tailored to his outdated specifications, was nothing more than a waste of time.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 .

HASH(0xa737c0fc) out of 5 stars Wish I had this Book a Year Ago May 20 2013
By Daniel Dwyer - Published on
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.

HASH(0xa737c174) out of 5 stars Worth it. June 6 2013
By Captain - Published on
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.

As usual, Jeff Herman saves the day. A wonderful book for new-comers or authors with multiple books out looking for agents or publishers.

Do not rely on the published information alone. You must check out each source individually for updated information. The online websites for each agent/publisher will be more current.
