Nathaniel edited my book, a representation of 30 years of my life's work. I really appreciated how responsive Nathaniel was to my requests. He kept me informed along the way about progress. The final product was made so much better because of his attention to detail and to seeing the book as a whole.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Nathaniel. He has served as my editor for multiple case reports, which, I am pleased to say, have all been accepted for Fellowship by the American Academy of Optometry. With Nathaniel's aid, I was able to focus my time and energy on research and content. Nathaniel also created a comfortable editing environment and provided constructive criticism to substantially elevate my final product.
