Overview

I'm a Stanford-educated journalist, author, and editorial consultant specializing in the social sciences. My articles and essays have appeared in Discover, the New York Times Magazine, Scientific American and Scientific American Mind, O, The Oprah Magazine, Psychology Today, Slate, FastCompany, Stanford Magazine, the Washington Post, Wired, and more. I'm the author of one business book, THE MIDDLEMAN ECONOMY, and have completed collaborations on three others: SECRETS OF THE MONEYLAB, HOW GOOGLE WORKS, and TRILLION DOLLAR COACH. (I was the co-author on the first and the researcher on the second and third.)

My editorial services include ghostwriting, developmental editing, Internet research, structuring book proposals, suggesting appropriate agents, and guiding authors through the entire process from idea to publication.

"Marina Krakovsky, our research partner, always goes about two steps farther than we expect. She is as insightful and thoughtful as she is diligent and thorough." (From the Acknowledgements of HOW GOOGLE WORKS, by Eric Schmidt, Jonathan Rosenberg, and Alan Eagle)

"Marina Krakovsky helped us connect Bill's principles with academic research, showing that he was truly ahead of his time in the business management world. She is always creative and insightful, and a heck of an editor to boot. It was a great pleasure to work with you again, Marina!"
