I can testify that what Michael says is more than true. I wrote a  
bunch of computer books in the 80's and 90's, and time after time it  
was the work of one editor after another that kept me from making a  
fool of myself.

Editors are worth their weight in first catalog dust jackets, I tell  
you what.
