-John Perkins, author of The New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

“Nic went above and beyond to get our book to its most engaging, compelling, and powerful form. The difference was dramatic! His mix of excellent editing skills, ability to hold the 'big picture' vision for how to maximize our book's impact, and ability to bridge coauthors' style and priorities is truly a gift. He was a great match for social justice oriented work for a general or academic audience. I would work with him again in a heartbeat!”

-Len Schlesinger, coauthor of What Great Service Leaders Know and Do: Creating Breakthroughs in Service Firms

“Nic was a terrific partner in getting to the essence of what I wanted to convey in my book, Two Birds in a Tree. As an editor, he had just the right sense of what to take out and what to keep, and how to maintain a seamless flow of personal stories, concepts, and business examples that would be compelling for the reader. He did all this while remaining true to my writing style, contents, and intention. He did all this with humor and grace and was very easy to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better editorial partner.”

-Ram Nidumolu, author of Two Birds in a Tree

"Nic Albert's editing of our book Shakti Leadership made all the difference. His ability to trim down a hefty manuscript without losing the essence is a rare gift."

“Nic has a development editor’s expert eye for both minor details and big picture ideas. He provided me with excellent and engaged guidance to make my book the best it could be.”

-Leon Anderson, author of Deviance: Social Constructions and Blurred Boundaries

"Nic was a superb development editor of our textbook.  He managed the big picture while also paying attention to the smallest details, keeping the three coauthors on schedule with their work, coordinating the development of 25 chapters and hundreds of inserts, and handling over 100 graphics, all while putting in a great deal of time to close editing the text. Impressively, he truly understood the book’s purpose, suggesting revisions that strengthened its fundamental narrative and arguments while improving its consistency and fluidity. Throughout he was professional, friendly, and often witty. I look forward to the next chance I have to work with him."

-Susan Gauss, coauthor of A New History of Modern Latin America

“Nic helped us get A New History of Modern Latin America ready for publication and he did a great job, running herd on us and being able to see both the details and the big picture. This was my first experience with a developmental editor and I recommend Nic and his skills—both as an editor and his people skills—with great enthusiasm.”

-Larry Clayton, coauthor of A New History of Modern Latin America

“Nic Albert served as developmental editor for a new edition of a textbook, in which I had a previous and a new coauthor. It was a long and complicated process, ultimately reaching nearly 700 pp., and Nic was always attentive, helpful, and efficient. He kept all the moving parts in order, wielded a deft editorial pen, questioned important points that needed raising, and finally delivered the whole package to the press. He saved us a great amount of time and anguish and likely avoided many gaffes and mistakes. He was just the greatest editor I've worked with.”

-Michael L. Conniff, coauthor of A New History of Modern Latin America 

“I have worked with Nic on several projects and his work was excellent. It makes a huge difference to work with somebody like Nic!”
