Press Features & Reviews

"I was just finishing a book on healthy aging, when I ran into my old friend Doug Abrams by “accident.” (Ha! Ha! As if these things were “coincidences.” More like “divine interventions” if you ask me.) I hadn’t given much thought to finding a publisher for the book. My agent had retired, so I thought I’d just contact a publisher on my own. I didn’t see a problem there. And I was doing fine, financially, so I wasn’t particularly interested in getting a big advance. When Doug heard about the book, he wanted to read it. After he did, he said: “John, whether it’s me or someone else, you need an agent.” To make a long story short, I believed him, and I hired him, and he got me a HUGE advance. Which I thought I didn’t need. But then, as life played out, it turned out that I needed every single penny of it. Doug was a total pleasure to work with. His competence and skill are unparalleled. But what is even more important to me that he gets who I am. I’ve found his attunement to my spiritual path and destiny to be every bit as extraordinary as his professional excellence."
