Reviews

'This is an excellent guide for all aspiring editorial staff and, indeed, established editors. Gill Davies gives a very clear and in-depth picture of how to acquire and live with an editorial job-title. Her information is delivered in an authoritative, brisk style with a dash of wry humour and clear enthusiasm for a job which can be both exciting, very rewarding and very nerve-racking. Established editors can also learn from this book and I shall happily recommend it to all the staff I help to train' - Mary Tapissier, Director, HR and Training, Hodder Headline Publishing

'This is a first-class complete and measured account of everything that a commissioning editor needs to know - whether they are new, aspiring or 'old hands' ... Ms Davies book should also be compulsory reading for publishing company directors' - Richard Balkwill, Copy Train, a writing, training and copyright service for publishers
