Thank you again for your expert consulting on Grey’s centennial book project. Your help allowed us to get started when we didn’t know where to begin. As you know, creating a book is a big job even for people who know what they’re doing, but it’s even more difficult when it’s all done in-house. The final product is as big and beautiful as our CEO and team wanted it to be.
