This book is much more than just a book. It gives advice and guidance. It tells you (when available) who the person will be that you are contacting within a company. It gives you the address, and information on how to submit the work. It even tells you how many freelancers the company usually works with every year, so you have an idea of your chances; you can understand the amount of competition there is for each company. But! Don’t let those numbers discourage you from attempting to send in your work and land a paying gig!
