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 (Viking)


"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 (Rodale)


"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 (Little, Brown, #1 New York Times bestseller)


"…[T]o my agent extraordinaire, Bonnie Solow. Bonnie expertly and patiently guided me through the book proposal, auction, launch, and foreign rights translations. Every author should have an agent who pays attention to details and gives her creative energy and leadership every step of the way." --John Norcross, Ph.D., Changeology (Simon & Schuster)


"Bonnie Solow of Solow Literary, my agent and new old friend.  Oh how I won the lottery when we found each other.  She called me to higher levels on all fronts and delivered even more in return.   Her passion for excellence is unwavering and her capacity for empowering is extraordinary." --Sukey Forbes, The Angel in My Pocket (Viking Penguin)


"To Bonnie Solow, my amazing agent. Since the start, you’ve stood by this project with an indomitable spirit. It wouldn’t have come to fruition without you. Thank you for your patience, vision, leadership, and above all, friendship. Any author would be lucky to have you in their court." --Jack Stern, M.D. Ending Back Pain (Avery/Penguin)


"I clearly lucked out the day Bonnie Solow walked into a Room to Read event in Silicon Valley. I did not think I had a second book in me, but she was convinced I did. Over more cups of coffee than I can count, she worked with me to come up with a structure and narrative arc. For the last few years, she showed incredible patience and confidence in my ability as a writer. Bonnie, thank you for being everything a good agent should be." --John Wood, Creating Room to Read (Viking Penguin)


“Bonnie Solow, my literary agent. You are more than an agent. You were there every step of the way with your editorial insights, emotional support, enthusiastic encouragement, and authentic friendship. I admire your integrity, your professionalism, your commitment to excellence, your sincere desire to make a difference, and your love for life.” --Jack Canfield,The Success Principles (HarperCollins, New York Times bestseller)


“[T]o the best literary agent in the world, Bonnie Solow…. Since that day she put heart and soul into making this book happen and I can’t thank her enough.
