After publication, the client wrote,

“Without Philip’s help, I could never have written and published my memoirs. Not only is the finished product much better than I ever could have imagined, but the whole process was very rewarding.

“Philip and his team are professional in every sense of the word, and I benefited first hand from his intuitive editing skills — his ability to rearrange a passage with skill and subtlety without sacrificing anything of the narrative. And all done with a lightness and humour that makes working together pure fun.”
