Meet the Editors
At Esquire Books, each manuscript is edited and peer reviewed in order to produce better books to train better minds. In fulfilling this mission, we use a combination of practitioners and professors for each book. This combination produces textbooks that teach proper academic models and train students to be excellent practitioners. Our standing editorial board is below with a brief biography. This board is frequently combined with additional professors and subject matter experts to produce a thorough textbook.
