Glatzer has a way of grabbing your attention right at the outset of this valuable writers tool book and not only keeping it but heightening it with each chapter.

Interesting read -- a lot of common sense information about how to get started with queries, forging relationships with editors and how to maximize your exposure to a wide variety of publications. Interesting read for anyone interested in what it would take to establish a freelance writing career.

I think I need a sideline to cope with wage reductions/furloughs, medical bills, car expenses, etc., and a second job at Wal-Mart does not appeal. *flips economy the bird*
