"I really thought the schedule was far too ambitious, but (happily!) I was wrong. Congratulations on achieving the impossible! Really excellent project management."

Production editor, Wiley, March 2020

"I would like to thank Managing editor Dr Nik Prowse for his help in gathering these articles and helping us meet our deadlines, without whom this edition would not be possible."

Stephen M. Smith, guest editor, Diagnostic Histopathology, 2020

"It was a pleasure to work with you on the manuscript and I much appreciated your careful and professional editing. I have worked with various other editors and publishers before, but working with you has been by far my best experience of an editing process."

Christian U. Becker, Business Ethics: Methods and Application, Routledge, 2018

 "Thank you so much for all your work on the project."

Lise-Lotte Kirkevang

"It has been a very inspiring and fantastic journey and I think we were all very relieved when you re-entered the project, knowing that it would be very good in your hands!"
Lars Bjørndal

"Thank you so very much for all of your genuine interest in us as editors and in the quality of this project, for your attention to detail and your calm, problem-solving approach. You have been exceptionally good to work with and I am most grateful to you."
John Whitworth

Lise-Lotte Kirkevang, Lars Bjørndal and John Whitworth, editors of Textbook of Endodontology, 3rd edition, Wiley, 2018

"The good news is we were fortunate enough to have Nik Prowse throughout this process."

Eugene R. Schiff, MD, editor of Schiff's Diseases of the Liver, 12th edition, Wiley, 2017

"You have been a tremendous help. Please know how much I appreciate your detailed work and willingness to improve the book... Dr Moulton would be proud! Thank you and I hope we work on another edition!"

Donald J. Meuten, editor of Tumors in Domestic Animals, 5th edition, Wiley Blackwell, 2016

"I lucked out getting someone like you to fine-tune this book."

Mark W. Leitman, MD, author of Manual for Eye Examination and Diagnosis, 9th edition, Wiley Blackwell, 2016

"You're a genius, by the way, at problem solving. I'm impressed. I'm glad you were able to take my concerns on board, but it doesn't stop me feeling in awe of your normal ability to spot the way through so clearly."

Freelance colleague, May 2015

"My thanks to you and your team, Nik! I would have been completely at sea if I'd tried to do that alone. I'm glad I listened to you."

Donald W. Jones, author of Economic Theory and the Ancient Mediterranean, Wiley Blackwell, 2014

"Nik works from Durham, England and he and I have never met, but it is no exaggeration to say that without his intelligence, attention to detail (he could have been a neurosurgeon), knowledge, common sense, and good humor the project might well have foundered."

from Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Human Evolution, edited by Bernard Wood, Blackwell Publishing, 2011

"We thank … project manager, Nik Prowse, for [his] patience, help and advice in this project."

from Amazonia, Landscape and Species Evolution: A Look into the Past, edited by C. Hoorn and F.P. Wesselingh, Blackwell Publishing, 2010

"I thank Nik Prowse for his expertise as a copy-editor."

from Population Genetics, by Matthew B. Hamilton, Blackwell Publishing, 2009
