Two years ago I used the 2005 version of this book to cold call about 150 agents regarding a psychology book I'd written. I contacted most of them via snail mail and some by email. About 15 of them gave me a personal response, three showed serious interest, and one of these signed me up. She and I were eventually able to get my book published. So I had a positive experience using this book. The information seemed accurate and legitimate, and this book was at least as well organized and useful as other similar ones.
