“Thanks go to our literary agent, Michael Snell. Michael guided us from book idea to published product—brainstorming with us over the proposal, the book‘s title (the words ‘the art of woo’ were spoken by him first), the contract, chapter titles, and other matters large and small. Mike is more than an agent; he is a true friend and partner.”
