"We were so excited to receive our book in the mail this week. We are so pleased with the final product! It is the culmination of 2 years of work, and we are grateful to have been given the opportunity to write it and to work with a team of people who were able to turn our ideas into reality. Thank you for your efforts, advice, and support throughout the creation and publication of the book. We look forward to the next chapter of collaboration with you as we market the book!"
- -Sara E. Williams and Nicole E. Zahka, authors of Treating Somatic Symptoms in Children and Adolescents
"Working with the staff at The Guilford Press has been a genuine pleasure. C. Deborah Laughton, Publisher of Guilford’s Methodology and Statistics program, with whom I’ve now had the privilege of developing three books, is without peer. Her wisdom, experience, and commitment to the project were key to its development and completion. In addition, members of the production staff at Guilford handled the challenging manuscript with skill."
- -Rick H. Hoyle, editor of Handbook of Structural Equation Modeling
"After seeing our book's page on Guilford's website, I have to say I am really thrilled with it. The cover looks great. And the thing I am most happy about is the price. I was expecting it to be considerably higher, and thus out of reach for the therapists who may benefit most from it. Other than marrying my husband, the decision to go with Guilford is the best decision I've made in life!"
- -Camille B. Wortman, coauthor of Treating Traumatic Bereavement
"I am grateful that you were open to my input on the cover. In the other book projects that I have worked on, no other publisher was ever interested in our opinion. When Paul Gordon (Guilford's Art Director) and I sat down to talk, I was floored that he wanted to listen and collaborate. Paul has an extraordinary gift. He was able to understand the idea I wanted to convey, visualize the essential elements, and translate them into a handsome design."
- -Susan M. Pollak, coauthor of Sitting Together: Essential Skills for Mindfulness-Based Psychotherapy
"The layout of the text is great. Guilford has done an outstanding job with this book. From the very beginning, Guilford combined personal attention and collaboration with the highest professional standards and expert advice. The copy writing was wonderful—meticulous and thoughtful. The art department creatively played off our suggestions and gave us just what we wanted. The marketing has been thorough and ambitious. Communication from all members of your team has always been responsive. We could not have been more fortunate than to have you shepherding us!"
- -Frederick J. Wertz, coauthor of Five Ways of Doing Qualitative Analysis
"I have been thoroughly impressed with all the Guilford staff I've worked with on my books, including tasks such as ensuring that I have a link from my website to the Guilford site, working with workshop organizers to ensure that my books are present, producing flyers and catalogs, etc. After devoting so much time and effort to writing, it is most heartening to me to receive the type of promotion Guilford gives our work. My experience with Guilford versus other publishers has been like 'day and night.'"
"I was so pleased when I found splendid paperback copies of the book waiting for me in my office. C. Deborah Laughton did wonderful work as our editor. The whole publishing process went very smoothly and the copy editor and cover designer did excellent work. The speed and turnaround were remarkable once we submitted our manuscript."
- -Janet Z. Giele, coeditor of The Craft of Life Course Research
"Not only the final outcome, but the process was one of the best I have had in producing 19 books. Every stage was handled well, with attention to detail, accommodation, and concern for improving the book all the way along."
- -Michael C. Roberts, coeditor of Handbook of Pediatric Psychology, Fourth Edition
"Once the idea for a book takes shape in the minds of the authors, a strong publishing company becomes an essential partner in the process of turning ideas into a finished product. In our experience, there is no better publisher than The Guilford Press in helping authors to shape the content and presentation of ideas for an intended audience."
- -Donald H. Baucom, Douglas K. Snyder, and Kristina Coop Gordon, authors of Helping Couples Get Past the Affair
"I received my copies of the Handbook, and it looks amazing! The Guilford team has done an extraordinary job with the book, and C. Deborah Laughton provided so much guidance, assistance, and inspiration (and patience!) during the process. I can say without hesitation that I have never been so pleased with a book's production."
- -Patricia Leavy, coeditor of Handbook of Emergent Methods
"We wish to thank the two best editors in the universe, Chris Benton and Kitty Moore at The Guilford Press. Thanks for believing in us, for being so generous with your time and expertise, and for holding our hands through the long days and nights of writing and revising. Without your creativity, encouragement, and fabulous sense of humor, this book would never have come to pass."
- -David J. Miklowitz and Elizabeth L. George, authors of The Bipolar Teen
"My book just came! It is beautiful, and I am so happy and most grateful to everyone I worked with at Guilford for the wonderful support, help, and encouragement."
- -Linda Openshaw, author of Social Work in Schools
"If you're thinking of writing or editing a book in the field of research methods, contact C. Deborah Laughton. Based on our experience, you will not be disappointed with the quality of Guilford's work."
- -Nick L. Smith and Paul R. Brandon, editors of Fundamental Issues in Evaluation
"Working with editor C. Deborah Laughton was an author's dream come true! Supportive, wise, responsive, witty, and a consummate professional in the fine art of publishing, she makes the journey from prospectus to 'in print' so painless that it's almost magical."
- -Michael Morris, editor of Evaluation Ethics for Best Practice
"It has been a real pleasure working with Guilford on this book, and I look forward to more in the future. I've published with a range of well-known presses, and Guilford is as tight, clean, and accommodating as it gets, from the idea stage to production. I have been so pleased at every step of the way. Frankly, the reason I've enjoyed the experience so much is because I've only had to write the content—in terms of all details, I don't need to worry. The Guilford label has always meant quality to me as a consumer, but now I can vouch for it as an author, too."
- -Laura Justice, PhD, coeditor of Achieving Excellence in Preschool Literacy Instruction
"Guilford is a highly organized press, from the senior editors to the production folks and sales reps. They are efficient and a joy to work with!"
- -Lesley Mandel Morrow, author of several Guilford books, the most recent of which is Developing Literacy in Preschool
"I would like to thank you guys for another outstanding job. Working with Guilford has spoiled me for working with other publishers. You really are the best..."
- -Donald G. Dutton, author of The Abusive Personality, Second Edition
"Our experience with Guilford has been truly exceptional. From our initial contact regarding the proposal, through the writing process, into production and marketing, we were always guided by skillful, friendly, professional, reliable, responsive people who, amazingly, also seem to talk with each other. Thank you all!"
- -Christopher K. Germer, coeditor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy
"I have been so pleased working with Guilford on several books, including Motivational Interviewing. I have worked with quite a few different houses, and have never experienced anything close to Guilford's creativity, attention to detail, superb editing, consistent support for authors, and excellent and timely production. You do terrific work from start to finish."
- -William R. Miller, author of several Guilford books, the most recent of which is Motivational Interviewing: Third Edition
"I have had good experiences with other publishers, and yet, rarely do I find the degree of collaboration that exists at Guilford. It is rare to experience vision, practical, and clinical sense from an editor—a combination I felt continuously from Kitty Moore, Executive Editor at Guilford. Kitty is, by now, one of the most clinically astute and market-wise editors I know. It is easy working with her for these gifts, but it is also easy because she succeeds at creating what we therapists try to create—an ability to speak openly and then seriously work through difficult issues. Other authors in the field: If you have a chance to work with Kitty, jump at it. A book is not just a book. It is an organization, a collection of peers who try very hard to do the best they can."
