There is no way that I can adequately convey my thanks to you for the guidance and encouragement you provided me . . . You always made me feel special and competent.George W. (2011)
Thanks for all the author info. I was a technical editor for more than 20 years and ran a tech publishing outfit at a university for more than 10 years, so I know a good set of information when I see it. Yours is excellent, and it’s a pleasure to read it.Sally W. (2005)
