"There are few people who can make books happen. Lissa Warren in one of them. Her book tells you how. Read it carefully. The advice is outstanding."—Susan Rabiner, co-author of Thinking Like Your Editor and co-owner of the Susan Rabiner Literary Agency

"Lissa Warren is one of the first and best book publicists I've encountered since starting this weekly column nearly 3-1/2 years ago. She could write a book on the subject, and she has. So thorough is her guide...Its value is considerable, so ignore it at your own peril if you're an author or a publishing publicist."—Richard Pachter, Miami Herald
