While Nathan Marz and I were writing Big Data for Manning Publications, we had the privilege of Renae serving as our Development Editor. During the development of the book, Renae continually demonstrated to me how I could improve the quality and clarity of my writing. She constantly asked questions that unveiled weak arguments which I had overlooked. On multiple occasions, she helped restructure a list of loosely coupled ideas into a strong theme that unified a chapter. Renae is a dedicated and driven editor, and should the opportunity arise, I would be pleased and honored to work with her again.
