    4-0 out of 5 stars YOUR GUIDE TO GETTING PUBLISHED
    Back in 1991, I was studying creative writing under a published author. The one thing we learned was to expect an average 70 rejections no matter if were beginners or seasoned pros. So if you write something, and you send it to be published, and it is rejected...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars More Than A Reference - It Inspires
    You are a writer, and that's why you are reading this review. The same old question, "Can I justify purchasing this book?" I just received the deluxe version of this book, which is the regular book with a year of online access.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Perspective
    I first bought this book 1.5 years ago when I was researching colleges for my oldest son.It changed the way I looked at selecting colleges from my prior misconceptions that "bigger is better" (like large state schools) and "it has to have a well-known name to be any good."Pope succeeded in convincing me that not only are there invaluable advantages to smaller-size schools but that there is definitely something to be said for "liberal arts & science" institutions that offer a well-rounded curriculum.I was able to relax then because my son had no idea what he wanted to pursue.As a result of reading the book, my son is now attending Cornell College in Iowa where he is getting a wonderful education in small classes with caring instructors and an administration that "took me by the hand," upon his initial arrival as a freshman, & addressed all my fears and concerns about leaving my son with a bunch of strangers 4 hours away.Because the book includes little quantitative information (%'s of in- vs out-of-staters, tuition costs, % of students who graduate/return sophomore year/go to graduate school, etc.) you will need to supplement this book with another, such as the Fiske guide, to give you a basis of comparison across schools.Even if you don't select any of the schools mentioned, it is worth a read if for nothing else other than a refreshing perspective.

    3-0 out of 5 stars No schools listed in the west
    Wish I had known that the book focused on schools on the east coast, in the midwest, and in the southeast.No California schools are listed.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of information to consider and is thought provoking
    I have a daughter ready to apply to colleges this fall and have found this book very helpful in planning and sorting through the myriad of information out there.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best College Guides
    The Fiske guide doesn't cover all the colleges in the US, only about 300 of the 2200+. However, these 300 are probably the ones most people find interesting. Certainly all the big name schools are here. All of the most selective colleges are included. Fairly recently they have started including schools from England and Canada which offer excellent educations with a foreign hint at a very low price. In fact, the University of Aberdeen (Scotland) (founded in 1495 - talk about tradition) is considered the best value of the colleges.
    2-0 out of 5 stars A great read, a pointless investment
    The Fiske Guide to Colleges is notorious for not changing its text much from year to year, but it should be known for other things as well.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value, Great Information, Great Book
    A really good book, I decided to hold off and instead of buying the 2006 version, I purchased the 2007 version. I don't know if there is a large difference in the information in each one, but I am glad I purchased this one. This book helped me select colleges I wouldn't have even considered or heard of. The information given is thorough and supposedly accurate, but the book gives you a thorough overview of each colleges breakdown from the ratio of males to females to the median SAT and ACT score. Each college has 2-5 pageswritten about it, of specific information about the nearby towns to the academic challenge and the social aspect of the college. Overall, a great buy for any college bound student. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars... One of the best guides to colleges
    The Princetown Review publishes a number of college search-related books, including the "Complete Book of Colleges" and this one. This book is essentially a distilled version of the "Complete Book", and frankly a lot more useful.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Our family's favorite college guide
    This is the best college guide for students with SAT scores above 1100. I don't reccomend it for students will lower scores because it concentrates on schools that expect a higher SAT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Necessary for Children's Book Authors.
    As an unagented children's book author, I was able to compile a list of publishing companies easily from this book. I haven't read through the entire book, but just the 200+ pages of publishers is worth the buy. This book has a lot of information and is well organized. I enjoyed reading about first time authors experiences with their writings and publishing stories. This book is the only one you will need for up-to-date info to start your journey as an author.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For children's writers and illustrators: if you can have only one book on your shelf....
    This is a condensed version of the review I posted on my web site, The Purple Crayon. I'm the author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Publishing Children's Books, and I have to be familiar with books in the field. CWIM is a very reliable market guide.
    5-0 out of 5 stars very useful

    5-0 out of 5 stars Delicious!
    Once again, Logo Lounge gives the most creative and innovative examples of logos anywhere in an unbelivably organized format. As a graphic designer specializing in logos, I find the Logo Lounge library and website completely indispensible. I enjoyed seeing the judges favorites and definitely have a few of my own. The Portraits and Sketches (profiles of specific designers & agencies, identities and their applications) are always interesting and inspiring but don't overwhelm the book as I like to get straight down to business and dive right into the Collections (zillions of great logo examples). I've been designing and collecting design & logo specific books since the 80's and NEVER have any books inspired me more than these. I don't think you really have to be a designer to enjoy this gallery of artwork, but you may just turn into one! ... Read more

    As one reads the various customer reviews, it becomes obvious that the commentary in this book is skewed sharply to the right. Conservatives think it's "fair and balanced"; liberals don't. That's a tell tale sign as far as 24 TV news networks are concerned.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Story
    I liked the fonts used quite a bit, but the story was slow at times. There was almost no charicter development and the plotlines were dated. Still, the surprise ending does what it intends.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Codes are Codes but Your Service is the Best
    IRC Codes are as the say "standard". It is good to have a single code book for residential building. However, the ability to go to one location, click on what I need when I need it, and have it delivered at a reasonable price where I need it...is the best.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Building Code - 2003
    Very good reference book for understanding the details of what the building inspector is using for acceptance criteria.Not for the novice, unless you have a good dictionary available.It does leave some of the minute details in the referenced industry standards (National Electric Code, ANSI standards, etc.).Provdes an excellent way to communicate specifics with the general contractor/builder. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource For Novel and Short Story Writers
    I purchased the 2007 NOVEL AND SHORT STORY WRITER'S MARKET because I 2007 will be the year. Of course I've purchased the 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 versions of the short story and novel edition or the overall WRITER'S MARKET for the same reason, because each year: 2003, 2004, 2005, or 2006 was supposed to be the year. I've since realized that getting a manuscript to work is not as easy as I had thought and 2003, 2004, and 2005 were unrealistic at best.

    I have received this book as a gift and have given it as a gift.It is wonderful!You can look at it for hours and still pick it up again and again.Also, you find that there are many more illusionists other than Escher.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow.
    This book is a wonderful overview of a lot of interesting artistic styles and mind-blowing techniques.Of course, you can buy more complete editions about the specific artists within this book, but I haven't seen such a variety of of artists and images put together in such a great way before.This was a great purchase, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in any of the artists within it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Masters of Deception
    This is an excellent resource. Anyone interested in visual illusion and the artists involved in creating it will thoroughly enjoy this book. It is difficult to get a chance to look at it, let alone read it, because someone else is always picking it up and becoming enthralled with it. ... Read more

    What makes this particular resource so valuable is that each page of the book has the dictionary section on top and the thesaurus section on the bottom.So, if you're looking up the definition of a word you don't have to hunt around in another section of the book for a similar word - it's on the same page. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I recommend you the last edition of World Coins
    An excellent book as allways, recommended for people who collect, and/or sells/buy World Coins, A lot of improved images and list of prices. I would say this book is the STATE OF THE ART in World Coins catalog.
    1-0 out of 5 stars No price changes....
    Here we go again...You might think that with the rise in the price of metals this year we would expect to see overall price evaluations in this latest edition of World Coins (The answer is NO, Krause Publishing figures that a re-designed cover qualifies as a 'new' addition). Save yourself some coin and purchase a used 32nd edition, which is basically identical except that with the 2006 ed. you also get coin listings of 2001 and up! You will now have to purchase another catalog for 'updated' 2001 and up coin pricing...Lazy and a rip. ... Read more

    This is one of the worst college resources out of the hundreds already in print.The book does little more than list the general statistics of the thousands of colleges in the United States, making it the size of a phone book.The text offers little insight into the character of the school and leaves a college bound student even more confused than before.All this information and more can be found at the collegeboard website(for free), where it is much easier to navigate.This resource may be helpful for a counselor, but is useless for an individual student. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
    This provides a lot of important information for people who want to get published in the poetry market!

    5-0 out of 5 stars who knew he was right?
    i was introduced to this book by Mangrove editor Neil de la Flor, who at the time was my instructor in a poetry class. he told me if i want to get published or become familiar with the community of poets i should look into this book. i did not buy the book. then Maureen Seaton, a published poet and my advisor, told me about Poet's Market. alright, still did not buy it. this semester i was buying textbooks and had some money leftover, i was going to spend it on junk i did not need but then saw Poet's Market on display at my university bookstore. wow, what a great book. it's basically the yellowpages for publishing houses. this is a definitive guide/resource/phonebook/whatever for getting into the realm of becoming a poet. it is alphabetized for simplicity and then there is an index that allows you locate publishing houses by category and topic.
    5-0 out of 5 stars My Bible to getting published---
    I could not go a year without this useful tool. I am new to writing poetry, but I have been published now with the help of Poet`s Market, with their advice and numerous submission listings. I`ve never had a writing class or attended a workshop about poetry, but if I had to recommmend one book to get you started without any formal training, this would be the one. Well, worth the investment. Stop throwing your money away on dozens of magazine subscriptions just to get some publishing leads. Poet`s Market will help to direct you to the ones geared to your style of writing:) ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Missing data on test scores and campus crime
    The book's jacket announces somewhat presumptuously: "students on campus tell you what you really want to know."
    5-0 out of 5 stars great resource for first-timers
    This book provides a good basic set of data and student comments on most of the colleges we're considering.A good companion is "Students' Guide to Colleges," which covers only the top 100 colleges, but is brutally honest.This Insider's Guide tends to present a pretty positive view of each college, although it provides a little more insight than just looking at the college's own website or viewbook.The Insider's Guide has colleges grouped by state.I think Insider's Guide gives us useful information about each college: the physical campus, the dorms and food, the use of drugs and alcohol, the types of activities students typically enjoy (sports, arts, whatever).

    1-0 out of 5 stars Buy the 2006
    I think it's disgusting the lack of research Yale Daily News put into this 2007 guide.There are a hundred things wrong with this guide, but just from opening to the school I go to (University of Delaware), and seeing that one of the things I have to do before I graduate is "go to the Stone Balloon," I could tell this book was just a new cover to the 2006 with updated admissions statistics.The Stone Balloon, a historic University of Delaware Bar and Music Hall, announced more than a year ago that it was going to be knocked down and replaced by condiminiums on Main Street.This was true, and it was closed for the spring, and camera crews were there at the beginning of the summer to see huge bulldozers knock it over.Pretty sad that NO ONE will be able to fulfill the Insider's Guide's instructions.Sweet life Yale...do some research and stop making money reprinting the same "best-selling" book each year ...
