Acknowledgments

 

"My heartfelt thanks goes to the exceptional Bonnie Solow for taking a chance on me, and for her tremendous support, which reaches far beyond the purview of a literary agent. I meet many lovely people in my line of work, but Bonnie is one of the best." --Erika Christakis, The Importance of Being Little: What Preschoolers Really Need from Grownups (Viking, New York Times bestseller) 


"Thanks to my friend and literary agent, Bonnie Solow. It was your recognition of the importance of this message that catalyzed all that has followed. But more than anything else, I am appreciative that this project has brought us our friendship. Thanks for your gracious leadership and attention to details. I know that you've gone beyond the call of duty--protecting, guiding, and helping this book reach the masses." – David Perlmutter, M.D., Grain Brain: The Surprising Truths About Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar – Your Brain’s Silent Killers and Brain Maker (Little, Brown, New York Times bestsellers)

"To our indefatigable agent, Bonnie Solow, who went beyond the call of duty and orchestrated so much of our creative energy when we were just beginning to talk about writing a book but didn't know if we could actually do it! This book was a figment of our imagination until she provided the road map and took us by the hand so it could become a reality. She is in many ways the midwife of this book, and we couldn't have done it without her invaluable leadership and support." – Louise Greenspan, M.D. & Julianna Deardorff, Ph.D., The New Puberty: Navigating Girls’ Early Development in Today’s World (Rodale)
