I can’t tell you how much we have LOVED working with you. You are an absolute pleasure to work with and a wonderfully competent and committed editor.
Dean is an exquisitely talented and dedicated editor. In the 17 years I have been publishing academic papers and books, I have never worked with someone more I trust more. He personifies what the profession of editing was intended to be, and it was a gift to be fortunate enough to work with him.
I have such a high opinion of Dean Bargh’s work that my last two books were delivered to the publisher on the proviso that he would be my editor. He is a skilled editor and publisher with a broad knowledge across a range of subjects and a keen eye for detail. I’ve had the privilege of working with Dean for many years as he helped build the wonderful Greenleaf Publishing catalogue, and would recommend him unreservedly for future projects. It has been very good to work with you over the years, and I thank you for everything.

I worked closely with Dean on four books over ten years, including Corporate Responsibility Coalitions, which won the Academy of Management Best Social Issues in Management Book Award. Dean was unflappable. Always ready to go the extra mile. Patient. A good sense of humour. And very professional.
On first impression, what really stands out is how readable Embedded Sustainability is. The font, layout, visual placements, and overall design are excellent. It seems easier on the eyes than most … We want to acknowledge the fine-tuning that you brought at the 11th hour. Here we are in March and the book is out… and the ambitious schedule was kept too! All in all a real pleasure to have another title with Greenleaf Publishing.

As you promised, the copies of Natural Corporate Management arrived today. As you can imagine, I have spent the last couple of hours paging through it and simply soaking up an author’s satisfaction of holding the book in my hands. I must say how attractive the book is – the print is quite legible, the paper of good quality, the cover attractive, the endorsements well delivered and presented. You, your staff, the supportive services … have been a real joy to work with – the very best publishing experience I have ever had. Friends here marvel that it all could be done so expeditiously with no snags or delays. I sense that much of the easy flow is attributable to you and your experience in dealing with authors of all types. So, please accept my deeply felt gratitude for your professional skills and your easy way of getting things done.
Earth Matters looks great, and is already attracting attention from scholars and activists on the basis of the initial publicity material … I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the Greenleaf team, on behalf of Saleem, myself and all the contributors, for the great job Greenleaf Publishing has done on this project, particularly in getting the book out so quickly yet at the same time with high editorial and production qualities. It has been a real pleasure working with you, and I hope that we get a chance to work on other projects in the future.
Dean Bargh was always incredibly helpful, efficient, and organized with the multiple books (and articles) that I’ve published through Greenleaf where he was production manager for many years. I highly recommend him.
The three of us are enchantés with the book. You guys have done a very impressive job – in a few weeks only. We really appreciate your professionalism. We thank you a lot for this!
Once again, thank you for a very through edit and corrections to all the links and things, and for superb layout and design. I am delighted with how things are going.
I appreciate all the hard work you have put into my book. I know working with me was not easy – lots of changes and challenges – yet you made me feel like this was a true partnership with one goal in mind.
Thank you very much! The Human Security book just arrived and it looks beautifully edited and presented. I really appreciate the hard work you put into it.
