I first met John at a conference when I was introduced by a colleague of mine as a potential book co-author. Shortly thereafter, I proceeded to work with John on two book publications and a two-disc interactive educational series. Apart from his knowledge of the publishing world, I was especially impressed with his passion for growing our profession and becoming a front runner in professional education. I soon came to realize that his passion for our profession extended to his passion for me as a professional and as a friend. I firmly believe that is what sets John apart from others. He truly cares about the projects he is working on, and equally cares about the authors he is working with. He has a unique skill set that is driven, yet compassionate. Through his strong work ethic and sincere approach, he instills mutual respect in a relationship that fuels any project idea and/or timeline.

It has been a distinct honor to have worked with, learned from, and gotten to know John Bond over the past 15 years. Whether working on a manuscript as a first-time co-author, a member of the Physical Therapy Advisory Board, or during challenges encountered while completing the second edition of a textbook, John is supportive, encouraging, and exudes professionalism. His years of intimate experience in the publishing industry became evident and helpful during the course of a project. John sets high standards for quality in the products he is associated with yet genuinely cares about the people involved. I am proud of the work I have accomplished under him and privileged to call him friend.

John Bond’s extensive publishing knowledge proved invaluable for our project. At several critical points in the process he had to weigh in with “tough love” appraisals. At the same time, however, he offered creative and insightful solutions for our consideration. For guidance through the publishing journey, consult with John Bond.

I am honored to share my very positive experiences with John Bond. He has been my publisher for three principal books in the field of prosthetics and orthotics, one of which has been translated into Korean and Portuguese. John is superb, helping to shape my manuscripts into books that are both sources of great pride and popular with the professional audience. He is gently persuasive with regard to deadlines and all other editorial matters. John Bond has proved repeatedly to be an exemplary partner in my publishing endeavors.
