You've worked tirelessly on your written content, and with a sigh of relief, you finally send it out to your professor, customers, publisher, or business partners. Then, when you re-read your work the next day, you are appalled to find glaring mistakes that embarrass you to no end.

I'm sure that scenario hits home with you. With anything you write, it's all too easy to see what you intended to put down instead of what's actually there. Truthfully, everyone who wants a professional product needs an editor. If it serves as any consolation,...

You challenged me to write an additional two chapters which I believe took this book to another level. Thank you for the tremendous seed you planted into this work.
