Reviews

"What Editors Do belongs on the shelf of any serious editor."--Technical Communication
"What Editors Do is the most informative and intelligent book on the work of publishing that you can own. In this collection, some of the best people involved in publishing in the 21st century write lucidly and engrossingly about everything that is important to editors and writers. A lively book that will also be great armchair reading for any book lover. As an editor and publisher of thirty years, I cannot recommend this book more highly."--Shaye Areheart, director, Columbia Publishing Course
"Editors do a lot--patiently, coolly, analytically, but also boldly, urgently, fervently. Their work, almost always invisible, makes ideas speak and books fly. What Editors Do shows just how varied--and valuable--editors are, especially now when the well-edited book is more necessary than ever."--William Germano, author of Getting It Published and From Dissertation to Book
"What Editors Do is essential reading for anyone who wants to edit, be edited, or learn how publishing really works. It's also thoroughly delightful--the chance to learn from a wide variety of industry greats as they share frank and fascinating stories about how all sorts of books, famous and unknown, came to life. I've worked in publishing for more than three decades but still learned volumes from this book."--Will Schwalbe, executive vice president, Macmillan, and author of The End of Your Life Book Club
