Acknowledgments from Grateful Co-Authors 

From Rosalynn Carter:  Helping Someone with Mental Illness, 1998

It is difficult for me to express the gratitude, admiration, and respect I feel for my coauthor, Susan Golant.  I am fortunate to have the benefit of her ability to plan and organize the book as well as her knowledge of the subject.  Writing this book took much research and study, more I think than either Susan or I anticipated when we first began the work.  Without her help with both the research and writing, the book would not have been possible.

From Rosalynn Carter, Helping Yourself Help Others, 1994.

My deepest gratitude goes to Susan Golant, my co-author.  Without her help with research and writing, this book would not have been possible. She not only worked diligently to gather the needed information from a wide variety of sources, but did so in record-breaking time. I am truly thankful to her for her fine work.

Susan Golant, my co-author, I admire and respect you. Without your work, support, and belief in this subject, this book would not have been possible. We laughed and cried and struggled giving birth to it. Your ability to stay with this project even though it entailed more than we both anticipated is admirable. I am grateful  for your expertise, focus, intelligence, and empathy. You are a consummate professional.

From Susan Weitzman, Ph.D., Not to People Like Us, 2000.

My appreciation goes to Susan K. Golant, the book’s midwife, who spent many laborious hours poring over every word after the book had been initially composed. Her intelligence and perceptiveness opened my eyes to aspects of the work that otherwise would have been lost, buried or unmentioned. With her quick wit and agile mind she is skilled at the microsurgery of editing and rewriting, and possesses a keen awareness of what to put where, helping to bring my thoughts clearly into light.  She has been a valued contributor and I am honored to have worked with a person of her caliber.

From Carol Gallagher, Ph.D. Going to the Top, 2000.
