From the moment I met Herb Schaffner at the offices of HarperCollins, I knew my first book was in good hands. Herb guided me through a year of cross-country reporting, sent thoughtful and encouraging notes, and, when I finally presented him with the work, edited it with precision and wisdom. Everything he touched, he made better. As a magazine journalist, I’ve worked with many a top editor, but Herb is and always will be my favorite.
