“I worked closely with Webster Noah over the past few months on a nonfiction book proposal. Noah was more than helpful on every aspect of my work. He showed me how to choose the right topic for a sample chapter and then how to properly structure, outline, and write the material. It was not an easy process because I was starting from scratch, as a writer and on the project. Noah not only helped me develop the material to the highest level, but along the way he taught me how to write at an entirely different level. His enthusiasm, rigor, and attention to detail made for the most terrific and productive experience.”

“I’ve worked with Webster Noah for over a dozen years now. We’ve probably done forty or fifty books together. As a book designer, I’ve always appreciated Webster’s ability to make any given book concept work at another level. Whether conceiving, re-writing, or editing, Webster works intensively and professionally while making it the most enjoyable experience. He also has a spider sense for what the reader wants – his commercial instincts are excellent. What’s more, he provided a real shot in the arm for me in my own writing.”
