While insights were breezy, book glossed over important facts of ISBN, Copyright, Copy Editing and revision, Barcodes, Cover, pricing and understanding your market/genre.
It was Advice on Writing, ultra-lite, and not comprehensive. Out of 432 queries, he finally got 1 hit. Even the Chicago Cub have a better batting average. Go Enie Banks!!
In fairness there was some discussion of Agent Agreements, and a lite overview of Publisher Contracts which could have been much better.
Book was a $3 striptease, without the naked payoff. Put it back on, and try another edition. (yuk yuk).

Great advice from someone who went through the mill searching for a literary agent. However, the book somewhat belies the title because much of it is about how to find an agent. Also, the author fails to heed his own advice about making sure one's book is copyedited, with several glaring misuses of words occurring, such as "pray" when "prey" was intended and "wet" for "whet." Overall, though, a comprehensive picture of the disadvantages of seeking and using a literary agent versus submitting directly to publishers is presented, and it can be quite helpful to authors.
