It's a recipe for success."

The Leadership Library® 

"I’ve been using your products for over 15 years. I start my day by logging into The Leadership Library®, it stays on my desktop all day, and it’s the last thing I close on my computer."

Craig Brownstein


"As a recruiter in the association industry, I have been using Leadership Directories data for several years, and can testify that this outstanding service has been a major contributor to my success. The ability to export pinpointed contacts and use them to create customized mass emails has been an invaluable tool.

Without exaggeration, within 10 minutes of sending my job postings to LDI contacts I get qualified resumes! This product has been so influential in my career that recently, when my (now former) employer closed due the economy, an executive search firm scooped me up immediately due to my above-and-beyond sales production. And...they promoted me to Managing Director.

Thank you, Leadership Directories!"

"The Leadership Library® helps us do more with fewer researchers. The reliability of The Leadership Library® is quite good, as compared with other sources. It gives us a head start on a search by providing an accurate and solid starting point. The Leadership Library® has helped us identify candidates whom we might not have otherwise found."

David S. Martin, Vice President

"The Leadership Library® is by far at the top of its genre, providing the most current, specific, and detailed information available. The content has been organized for very quick, yet detailed and comprehensive, searches. Leadership Directories customer service is outstanding - and fast.

We're junkies. We use it every day."

Connie Murray, Knowledge Manager,

"National Public Radio has subscribed to The Leadership Library® for several years, and we consider it an essential resource. I can't imagine how much time and effort your free 2002 Elections section saved us, since we didn't have to go poking around databases and the Internet to find all the opposition candidates."

Kee Malesky
Reference Librarian
National Public Radio


"The Leadership Directories Yellow Books have long been the best directories of Congress and the federal government. The steady expansion of new titles and now the availability of all the directories in electronic format have made The Leadership Library® essential in reference work."

Martin Dooley

"The Leadership Library® is terrific.

"We fight over the Congressional Yellow Book. We cannot live without it. It is a handy, accurate reference. The access to phone numbers, addresses, and e-mails is invaluable."

Desiree Grant
Executive Assistant, Government Relations
Echostar Communications Corporation


"The Congressional Yellow Book is everything readers always wanted to know about Congress, but just could not bring themselves to ask. After its plethora of useful numbers, users will find each entry with the following information: member's name, contact information, photograph, key aides, committee assignments, organizations and state and district offices, and more. It is hard to imagine a more comprehensive guide to those who lead us by representation."

Mark Herring

Federal Yellow Book

"The Congressional Yellow Book and the Federal Yellow Book are indispensable! With the rate of change in Washington, both listings help me get up to speed on new leaders, roles and committee assignments. Between the size of the government and the rate at which the people working inside Washington changes, no one can keep track of it without a little help. Thanks to Leadership Directories, help is on the way."

Donna Brazile

Federal Regional Yellow Book

"I'm just in love with the Federal Regional Yellow Book! We used to have to search the web and make lots of calls to locate key federal contacts. Now we simply use the Federal Regional Yellow Book to have immediate - and current - access to the contacts we previously spent so much time looking for."

News Media Yellow Book

"The News Media Yellow Book is an invaluable resource that I cannot live without. It is my bible for getting the job done for business, television, technology, and online clients."

Renee Edelman
Executive Vice President
Edelman Worldwide


"The News Media Yellow Book has been around a long time and I find it very helpful for identifying media outlets and the issues they cover. For example, when I want to pitch a Travel story outside my home papers in Washington DC, I flip through the pages to find papers that have Travel editors on staff. Then I’ll email them directly. The News Media Yellow Book is both online and in print, and shelved in many libraries. For easy access and up-to-date information, you should subscribe yourself."

Audrey Hoffer
Freelance Journalist


"The News Media Yellow Book helps us analyze and research key management across all facets of the media, whether print, broadcast or online. The deep biographical information, combined with the topical, geographical and other indices enables us to source emerging leaders for our clients. Engagement after engagement, we find the News Media Yellow Book an invaluable reference."

Holly M. Haygood
Vice President
Bishop Partners Executive Search


Associations Yellow Book

"With the table of contents and the extensive indices, the Associations Yellow Book is easy to use and provides a lot of information on professional associations. Business and special libraries needing this type of information will find it the most useful. For larger libraries needing directory information on the other subjects covered by Leadership Directories' other 14 titles it may be well worth the price to subscribe to The Leadership Library®, where the publisher provides daily updates."

"The Law Firms Yellow Book is a wonderful tool. I use it for all of my legal search work. The Law Firms Yellow Book is much more up-to-date than the other legal search products that I've tried."

Miriam Scott

W. E. S.

"I just wanted to let you know about my satisfaction with the Law Firms Yellow Book. I have had the good fortune to have worked not only with the books, but also with the web-based application over the last six years. They have allowed me to make better contacts, faster -- which equates to additional revenue. Being able to quickly get the information I need -- larger law firms, latest address, best contact for the application, as well as direct phone numbers and email addresses, has been invaluable."

Toni Wilson
VP of Sales


"I find the Law Firms Yellow Book to be the most comprehensive and accurate source for gaining contacts and insights into law firms. It breaks down the firm by offices and practice area, providing key decision maker contacts at each level. As a Case, Matter & Practice Management software vendor, that's critical for my being able to target specific areas within a firm. I find my dog-eared copy of the Yellow Book always has up-to-date direct telephone and email listings. I can't function without it."

Tim Walsh

Leadership Directories information is thorough, accurate, and up-to-date. Being able to understand a prospect's organizational structure, as well as having direct dial numbers and e-mail addresses, makes Leadership Directories the best source of prospecting information I have used. Not only has it enabled me to significantly shorten sales cycles, it has enabled me to identify unique opportunities to elevate contact levels to decision making levels."

Customer Service

"I never fear -- unlike a number of other service companies I work with -- I know I can get you on the other end of the phone. Within minutes, you had walked me through the process, solved my immediate problem and just as importantly, taught me what to do next time to avoid being in the situation again. All without the condescending attitude or rushed approach that is so common with other tech support centers. Thank you so much for making my life easier! I love Leadership Directories and their customer service. It's a great combination."
