Here is the quote from the book: "To help you narrow down the list of possible publishers for your work, we've included several indexes at the back of this book. The Subject Index lists book and magazine publishers according to their fiction and nonfiction needs or interests. The Age-Level Index indicates which age groups publishers cater to. The Photography Index indicates which markets buy photography for children's publications. The Poetry Index lists publishers accepting poetry.

However I don't think that there was enough information about publishers out there. Several times I was at a store such as Target or Michaels and saw a book where the illustrations were close to my work so I get the name of the publishing company and go home to find it in this book so I can get more information about the company but 4 out of 5 times, that particular publishing company was not listed in the book.
I don't expect every single publishing company to be in this guide but if they are in a major store such as Target or Walmart, then I do expect those companies to be listed.
I think it is a very informative book but I'd like to see less interviews and more publishing companies listed. I would say 25% less interviews and have that amount added in the publishers information section.
Also, a number of potential agents listed that have their validity questioned all over the web, there are even agents listed that have never made a sale.
Better than nothing. But not nearly as good as it should be.
