“This short e-book is funny. All-the-way-through-funny.” —eCapris review
“What makes this book so funny? Simply put: Hyperbole. Ms. Friedman took all of my bleakest imaginings and wildest expectations of publishing industry trends, stripped them down, turned them on their edge, and somehow made me appreciate being shown how completely batty I’ve been over this topic.” —Marni Folsom
