Some Acknowledgements:

...In previous editions I had two editorial assistants helping me. This time I had one doing the work of two. Connie Walsh, Developmental Editor for Springer, did a fantastic job of dealing with all the surgeons, reading over the chapters and revisions, and making sure everything was just right. Thank you for your hard work and perseverance...

Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual, 5th edition

...Connie Walsh, however, deserves particularly special gratitude, as the developmental editor. Her involvement, on a daily basis with advising, suggesting, and hand-holding, as this textbook went from the outline stage to the finished project, has been quintessential. Without her encouragement and patience, this textbook would never have been concluded...

Connie was wonderful to work with. She was very responsive and completed a large task on a tight timeline. I noted one tiny issue after the job was completed, and she fixed it right away for me very quickly and with no additional charge. Having her experience and expertise on the proper format for my document was a gamechanger. Thanks, Connie!
