Press Features & Reviews

"I doubt that there is a book agent and companion in authoring a book better than Doug Abrams. He is part-air-traffic-controller, part-auctioneer and part-fierce-advocate. He knows what people want and need, and he knows what language they speak (which may not be the same language spoken by an author!). He can ask the kinds of questions that clarify for the author what he is really trying to say. And then he wraps all this publishing/authoring expertise in a personality that is buoyantly joyful, unrelentingly positive, and personally affirming. I cannot imagine a better companion in shepherding a book from idea to print. I thought I was just getting an agent, but what I really got was a trusted, honest and dear friend. It doesn't get much better than that!"
