This is my review: 4 stars
I received a free copy of this book but I would have bought it anyway. It is such a huge job for a self-publisher to find this information on your own, and you have no way of knowing how reliable are the people you find. These are compiled ready for you and all recommended by the authors. AND they promise to keep the lists up to date.
There is a very comprehensive list of topics. The book begins with an introduction explaining who the authors are and why you need all this information. There is a paragraph of helpful explanation at the beginning of each topic, then lists in alphabetical order. The people listed are nearly all American, though there are some from UK, Australia and elsewhere round the globe. These days with the internet it doesn’t matter where they are because you can communicate electronically.
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because there are too many reviews at the front before the Table of Contents – the link doesn’t go straight there. Otherwise – highly recommended.
