“Writing a book about something as important as our relationship with technology and sharing my own life in it is an unreal process. It could have never been completed without all the friends and colleagues who helped me on this path. First and foremost, I want to thank Ray Sylvester, my main editor and collaborator on this book. The first time we spoke was a year before the publication of this book. We started to work together about six months later, and I couldn’t be happier that we did. Not only did you do the job of an editor, you named the book, proposed major directional changes, and were the sanity check on all my crazy ideas throughout. Your commitment, resilience, and steady demeanor have made it one of the easiest and most fruitful collaborations of my life.” [from the book’s acknowledgements section]

“As every writer knows, crafting a full-length book can be a demanding, perplexing enterprise. Fortunately for me, Ray Sylvester was instrumental in helping me navigate the process. I relied on Ray for his guidance and expertise in helping me craft and polish my book. I give him the highest recommendation.”

Nadine Grzeskowiak, RN, BSN, CEN, author of Dough Nation: A Nurse’s Memoir of Celiac Disease, from Missed Diagnosis to Food and Health Activism:
“Thanks to Ray Sylvester for all of his excellent and very professional editing on Dough Nation, my first book. Ray alleviated all of my fears, worked through edit after edit, asked very pertinent questions and talked me through the hard process of putting it all together in a very readable form, which is not what I gave him in the beginning. Stellar editing, amazingly patient and supportive!”

Michael R. Sherer, author of One Disease: Redox Imbalance: How stress becomes disease
“Ray was the editor of my first book, One Disease: Redox Imbalance, a health book targeted at medical professionals and highly motivated patients. I chose him over other editors because of his experience editing other health books and it was a really great decision. Throughout the process, he was professional, prompt, thorough, and insightful. I was pleased with how the book turned out and it impressed one of the top scientists in the field enough that we’re collaborating on a follow-on book. Ray played a significant role in achieving that level of excellence, so I’d also rate the engagement as a great investment toward achieving my goals as a new author. I highly recommend Ray as an editor, particularly for health-related books, where his knowledge of the field adds significant value.”

“Writing a book is not an easy task and I’m glad I had Ray on my team to edit my work. He helped me with my book Digestive Health with REAL Food and the cookbook of the same name. There was so much information I wanted to give people and it really helped to have Ray help me better organize my thoughts and clarify my message so I can help more people get healthier as a result.”

Adam Farrah, author of The Paleo Dieter’s Missing Link, Paleo Magazine writer, blogger at PracticalPaleolithic.com, Paleo diet coach, CrossFit coach, and kettlebell coach:
“Ray was the editor for my book The Paleo Dieter’s Missing Link. He did an excellent job of streamlining and organizing the original draft and making it flow. Ray did a great job of editing without losing any of my unique tone and voice and he was always right on time for deadlines and promised drafts. In particular, Ray’s interest in and knowledge of Paleo health and nutrition was an advantage as he challenged me on some points and helped me clarify and communicate some ideas better than I would have without his understanding of the topics. I’d definitely work with Ray again and my book came out beautifully as a finished product.”

Cain Credicott, mastermind behind Paleo Magazine and Paleo Media:
“Ray has been editing with Paleo Media for a couple years now, and has worked with us on several book projects in addition to our regular magazine. His dedication to excellence, his focus on detail and his enthusiasm for our publication has been an immeasurable asset to us. Ray works diligently on every publication while always meeting our high standards of quality and he is easy to work with and quick to respond. His output of projects has exceeded our expectations and we truly appreciate his work!”
