"There are only ten people who understand and have mastered the book publishing process - Rick Frishman is one of them - I have counseled him, listened to him, and watched the books he promoted turn to gold. If you're looking for someone to take your book to the promised land, I promise that Rick Frishman is the rocket ship that will take you there."

Jeffrey Gitomer, King, Buy Gitomer, Inc

"When I talk about excellence in the book promotion and publicity industry, the first name I always say is Rick Frishman! He is absolutely the tip of the top and the cream of the crop! He walks his talk and does what he says he will do and gets results, but most importantly he is a gentleman and a scholar! I highly recommend Rick Frishman!"
