Thanks so much, Brett! Files received.


I really appreciate all of the great work you’ve done on this project. I don’t know if this book will be perfect by the time we’re through making this round of corrections, but I am certain that it will be much improved, and you’re one of the biggest reasons for that. You’ve got that rare combination of subject matter expertise and attention to minute detail… You’re a rare breed, Brett. Thanks so much!

Bonjour Brett,
Je ne peux que me réjouir que nous bénéficiions de vos services. Franchement, ça a de la gueule !
Je souhaiterais donc que nous puissions, si vous en êtes d’accord, glisser dans la partie remerciements des articles sur lesquels vous avez travaillé une petite phrase mentionnant votre participation. Pourriez-vous me faire une proposition en ce sens, histoire que ce soit aussi bien écrit que le reste ? Un petit coup de pub ne peut pas nuire….

Bien cordialement
