The following few sentences combined into one of the nicest compliments I have ever received - and I share it with both permission and pride:
"Herbie...I've worked in and around professional publishing for more years than I care to admit. And it is without doubt that you are one of the most courteous and gracious people I have had the pleasure of getting to know. You do your industry and life a great service. Wishing continued good health, luck and success!"
