What Experts Say About Monteiro & Company 

Paul Krugman, Paul Krugman, Nobel Laureate, Distinguished Professor at the City University of New York Graduate Center, and columnist for The New York Times.

“I’d like to thank Barbara Monteiro of Monteiro and Company, who organized the publicity and the book tour for the hardcover edition, for making a cause out of this book and making an extraordinary effort on its—and my—behalf.”

Ambassador Joseph Wilson, THE POLITICS OF TRUTH

“Had it not been for Jon Elliott, talk-show radio host on the West Coast, and Barbara Monteiro, a publicist from New York, I never would have written this book. Not only did they encourage me but they also put me in contact with Carroll & Graf, which started the ball rolling.”

Peter Firestein, Global Strategic Communications, Inc.

“One of the best choices I made in launching my book CRISIS OF CHARACTER was to ask Monteiro & Company to manage publicity that would reach both general and professional audiences. They are thoughtful, creative, tireless and generous. I recommend them most highly.”

John A. Byrne, former Executive Editor of Business Week, founder of C-Change

“Barbara knows everyone worth knowing in business book publishing. I’ve known Barbara and her firm for a number of years and consider her at the top of the game.”

Philip Turner, Editor of the bestseller THE POLITICS OF TRUTH

“Barbara Monteiro and her associates are skilled and passionate promoters of cutting-edge books that matter. She facilitated my acquisition of Ambassador Joseph Wilson’s THE POLITICS OF TRUTH, and then did a great job of helping us make it a national bestseller, one of the proudest moments of my career. I regularly recommend her firm to my authors seeking publicity efforts to supplement that of my own company, and urge other publishing houses to do the same.”

Walter Kiechel, Editor at Large, HBSP

“Harvard Business School Publishing Co. benefited from working with Barbara Monteiro and her firm, as well as enjoying the experience. She’s sharp, responsive, and thoroughly knows the worlds of book publishing and the business media.”

Louise Brockett, Vice President, Director of Publicity, W.W. Norton & Company, Inc.

“Monteiro & Company is passionate about the books that they represent.  Barbara Monteiro worked closely with Paul Krugman and helped to build his visibility to a point where he became a natural for a New York Times OpEd columnist, then took him on to national bestselling author. We consider Barbara and her colleagues to be honorary members of our department.”

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg

“You made the absolute, most efficient use of every minute in each of the cities I visited. You are a great publicist—and I will be sure to keep that in mind if there is ever a sequel to Bloomberg by Bloomberg!”

David Cutler, Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences for Social Sciences at Harvard University, and author of YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE

“I benefited enormously from working with Monteiro and Company. They have great insights and tremendous knowledge about the book business.”

Ken Blanchard

“To Barbara ‘pit bull’ Monteiro. Thanks for all your support. What a joy to work with you!”

Rachel Kauder Nalebuff, MY LITTLE RED BOOK

“Without your help this book would not have been possible. Keep it flowin!”

Alan Axelrod, author

“You created a great campaign for my Elizabeth I, CEO: witty, fun, and very, very memorable, with some of the best press I’ve ever had. Who could ask for more?”

Mitchell Wade, co-author of GOT GAME

“From the beginning I have been impressed by the intelligence and savvy you and yours brought to the project. You understood the book, and ways to market it, extremely well. Your advice has always been right on. You’re nice people. And I’ve always felt I was safely in the hands of real, top of the line professionals with heart and brains.”

Harriet Levine, President, Stuart Levine & Associates LLC

“We appreciated the professionalism of Monteiro & Company during the launch of Stuart Levine’s THE SIX FUNDAMENTALS OF SUCCESS first edition. Their creativity helped us gain publicity and we enjoyed our experience, too.”
