As an author, I have had the opportunity to know John for the last 10 years. In that time, I was able to draw upon his extensive experience in many areas related to textbook and journal publication. He and his team were personable, knowledgeable, and extremely professional, and together they made my experience as an author a remarkable one. He is a leader in the health care publication field who inspires individuals to be creative and develop products unlike anything on the market. It has been an honor and a privilege knowing and working with him.

John Bond is the consummate professional. He has been a strong advocate for health care professionals throughout his career in the publishing industry. From my perspective as an athletic training administrator, scholar, and educator, John has worked to gain a profound understanding of our profession and was duly recognized for his efforts when he was chosen as an Honorary Membership Award Winner by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) in 2008. His big picture perspective and forward-thinking leadership style serves him well in the ever-changing publishing industry. Additionally, his vision to stay abreast of the emerging trends in the health care industry has advanced his career in the publishing industry and enabled him access to the leading authors and leaders in the field.

I have worked with John Bond since the mid-1990s and published six books under his leadership. John provided immense knowledge about the whole publishing process as I developed these books. He was responsive to my questions, innovative in suggesting new directions for the books and publishing methods, and it was always a pleasure to work with him.

John Bond’s leadership is highly valued. As the author of two textbooks in the field of occupational therapy, and as an instructor in an occupational therapy assistant program for 10 years, I have known him as both author and consumer during 25+ years of association with his company. John’s vision has helped make exceptional resources: well written, with creative design/layouts, and innovative subject matter. Under his direction, John has provided a venue for professional scholarship in the occupational therapy profession, significantly expanding our knowledge base in the process.
