Thank You

From Chicken Soup for the Soul 20th Anniversary Edition

Thank You

What an interesting project this was. It was great fun revisiting the original Chicken Soup for the Soul stories that started it all, and wonderfully affirming to ask and hear “yes” from the thought leaders of today when we asked them to join us with their new stories.

We owe a special thanks to our editor Jeanne Blandford, who created a new manuscript from the original Chicken Soup for the Soul, and then integrated our 20 bonus stories. She shepherded the entire project from start to finish. We also are grateful to Kristiana Pastir for overseeing the production process, and for proofreading the final layout along with editor Barbara LoMonaco and our assistant publisher D’ette Corona. And we are very happy that our VP Marketing Joelle Jarvis had the insight that led to this project.

Heidi Krupp’s able assistant, Suman Mampilly, kept us organized and on track with the staffs of all our new contributors, and what can

I say about Heidi except that she is the best and seems to know everyone. How she got busy people like Tony Robbins and Deepak Chopra and Dr. Oz to contribute stories for this book is beyond me!

Finally, we need to thank Jack and Mark for starting it all, and our Creative Director and book producer, Brian Taylor at Pneuma Books, for reinvigorating this book and our others with his new vision.
