president of the American Sportscasters Association, calls the book both “novel and fascinating.”
"It's an interesting tool for writers who understand that marketing is more than half the battle when you have a book to sell, no matter who published your work, what it's about or what your sales numbers look like right now." Maryan Pelland
"If you are interested in listening to talk radio or being a guest on a show this book is essential. This work is suitable for general reference collections and should prove to be a popular reading title as well."
Ralph Lee Scott, American Reference Books Annual, July 2009
"Imagine being able to sit down with a coffee and discuss with hundreds of radio hosts what their shows are about and what kind of guests they’d like to book. You can do just that with Francine Silverman’s new book Talk Radio Wants You: An Intimate Guide to 700 Shows and How to Get Invited. I have paid $300 or more for talkradio show databases that had far less information than Francine presents in her highly-competivitely priced book.....I would expect most people can find a dozen hot prospects for making their pitch in under half-an-hour, that is if you can stop yourself from endlessly browsing the fascinating entries! .....
I can’t recommend this book strongly enough for any author who wants to get into this high-profile, low-cost method of marketing.
"Most talk show guests are authors -- with good reason. Authors have done recent research, focused on their readership and have targeted their message.
Talk show hosts want to interview the AUTHORity.
Talk Radio Wants You shows how to match your subject to more than 700 talk shows."

"Got your book. Terrific job! Thanks for compiling all this information. Especially the "Top 100 Talk Show" appendices. Your book will be of great use to me." Matthew Stein,

"Talk Radio Wants You is a fact-filled adventure into an area most know little about..."I encourage people to use radio as their voice for promoting books, businesses and services," Silverman urges. "After all, it's free and easy." It's possible her comprehensive volume may be the easiest way yet to make the proper connections." Jim Cox, Chattanooga Airwaves
