'If I have ever read a book that really tells it as it is where the poetry world and getting your poetry published in it, is concerned, then this is it. I cannot recommend it too highly, both to the young aspiring poet who is new to the poetry scene, and to the older, in some cases perhaps slightly disillusioned, poet who thinks he has tried it all with little or no joy. The information here is factual, informative, extensive and, thanks to a clear and clever book layout, extremely easy to follow.'
