I would love to write a review of this book. Unfortunately, altho I paid for it, I never got it. Somehow the link I was sent for it did not work.
I will not rate it now, since I did not receive it. As soon as I receive it, I will review it. I am very disappointed with Smashwords so far. I have tried to reach you in a variety of ways. I hope this one works. Julia Schopick JuliaS1573@aol.com
The book I was trying to buy (and indeed paid for) is Francine Silverman's "Directory of Health Talk Radio Shows." Please make sure I get the book. Thanks so mucn.
