    Not Very Helpful

    I expected so much more from this book. It gave very little insight into the publishing industry and instead gave tired advice from authors and agents. The section on query letters and synopses were much too short, as was the information on choosing the right agent. Now I realize that Writer's Market has other books out that probably cover those issues, but since this was such a disappointment, I have no intention of buying those.
