Professionalism

I’ve had the privilege of working with John Bond in my role as chief editor or author on multiple ophthalmic surgical textbooks. He’s been the consummate professional who has gained the respect of everyone in the publishing business, and particularly from the physicians he has worked with. John’s been like a top movie producer who sets up the director (the editor) and the actors (the chapter authors) for success. In this role he’s been supportive of our needs, sensitive to our clinical demands, and has always provided sound insights and advice—ranging from selecting topics and authors to designing book covers.

I have had the privilege of working with John over the past 25 years.  John is a true professional; he thoroughly knows the publishing business, clearly understands the issues in dealing with medical content, and is a clear thinker and a "straight shooter" in dealing with authors.  In addition, John understands the nuances of having texts in English published in other languages.  I have no hesitation in giving John my highest recommendation.  Those who seek his advice will be very fortunate.

John Bond and I have worked together in a variety of roles for over 20 years with nothing but positive interactions. He is extremely knowledgeable, effective, and interactive regarding the entire publishing process and can clearly identify the needs of author, editors, and publishers. But, his most outstanding characteristic is his sensitivity and openness to all those professionals and individuals that come in contact with him. He is an exceptional human being and will always provide constructive and insightful perceptions no matter the role he assumes.

John Bond is not only the consummate professional, his knowledge of the publishing world is second to none. In the over 20 years that I have worked with John, he has guided me through the production of some fifteen textbooks, revised editions, and translations into foreign language. He is extremely organized and detailed, understands the needs of authors and organizations, and is well-respected in the industry. Most importantly, John is a trusted friend who values his relationships with his business partners.

I met John Bond a number of years ago. Because of the positive feedback from other authors who are good professional friends, I heard that John was a publisher who seems to really care about the authors, and really goes out of his way to help them during the textbook production process. I was delighted when John agreed to take on my textbook project and discovered all of the positive things I heard about John as a professional were absolutely true.  I know that he will use his experience and personality to find success as an independent consultant.
