"Recommended for those who find the need to do any kind of reader's advisory (now known as integrated advisory work) and need not only a concise overview of a genre but also thoughts about what to suggest next in various areas. Especially helpful with YA work." - Teacher Librarian
"The book is organized around genres, and the chapters were written by some of the most recognizable names in RA. . . . An innovative guide to encourage librarians to think beyond the book when providing RA service." - American Libraries
