Michael’s professional knowledge, consummate writing skills, and reassuring guidance were just what this first-time author needed in order to successfully write and publish Data Driven: How Performance Analytics Delivers Extraordinary Sales Results. I absolutely couldn’t have done it on my own. Mike provided vital input on the format of the book, and he creatively translated my thoughts into engaging, understandable, and impactful content. I tell anyone who is thinking about writing a book to call Michael.

I have contracted with many writers and editors on various projects, but I never had anyone in your profession produce such high-quality work, and do so BEFORE the assigned deadline. My expectations for your work were high, and you have exceeded them. You are a master of the written word. Your keen knowledge of business, coupled with your firm grip of the English language, makes you a rare and valuable commodity.

Mike Dowling did an outstanding job of editing and ghostwriting my latest book, Leading With Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton. His experience and natural talent were obvious in the way he expertly guided me, taking my stories and ideas and fashioning them into a highly professional finished product.
Mike was easy to work with, showing the right balance of accommodating my needs and pushing back appropriately to help me when I got in my own way. Thanks to Mike’s great work, I believe we ended up with a first-class book, which won the 2012 International Book Award in the €œBusiness Management & Leadership€ category. I highly recommend Mike for editing and ghostwriting services.

My sincere appreciation goes out to Michael J. Dowling, my professional ghostwriter and publishing guide, for his expert help with my book, Roses in Concrete: Giving Foster Children the Future They Deserve. Like a classical pianist, he skillfully transformed my passions, convictions, and lived experiences into written words. Michal pushed me when I needed pushing, pulled back when I needed space, and prayed with me when I needed support. Without reservation, I highly recommend Mike and his services.

The thought of writing a book can be overwhelming. I could only muster enough time to develop content for Mining Your Own Business: A Primer for Executives on Understanding and Employing Data Mining and Predictive Analytics, which I co-authored with Jeff Deal. I’m grateful to have been introduced to Michael J. Dowling. Mike is not only a great writer, but he knows how to publish books. He took our technical content and turned it into an easy-to-read published book, ideal for our target audience. Success! I highly recommend Mike Dowling and Wool Street Writers for anyone who wants to write and publish a non-fiction book.

Mike Dowling was great to work with, shepherding me through the creation of my book DIVERGE. Mike definitely made the writing process enjoyable. The final product a successful piece that I am very proud of. He was a good partner through what is a sometimes stressful process. With the confidence and success I obtained with this book, my next book will also be with Mike.

Michael J. Dowling provided expert writing and guidance to my co-author, Gerhard Pilcher, and me throughout the process of producing our book, Mining Your Own Business. Mike would listen to us talk. Then he would do the hard work of capturing complex concepts and expressing them in a clear way that is understandable to business leaders who do not have technical expertise in our field.
Mike is a superb writer, but his value goes well beyond just the writing. He understands the book publishing business, and what he does not do himself, he refers to other experts equally as good. Gerhard and I are very pleased with our book, and we are glad to recommend Michael Dowling and Wool Street Publishing to other writers who need expert assistance.

I just received the copies of Bottom Line Focus from the printer, and I gave away two of them to executives I know. Both really liked it. In fact, they said they made notes and underlined key passages. One called today and ordered six copies for his staff. The other said he had never read a book where the author’s personality came through so well! I wanted to share this positive response with you. You did a great job working with me on my book, and it’s really encouraging to get this kind of feedback.

I hired Michael to help me write The Value of Core Values: Five Keys to Success through Values-Centered Leadership. He did a phenomenal job collaborating with me on the structure of the book and editing my work. Not only was Michael a pleasure to work with, encouraging me throughout the process,

Michael, writing a book with you has been one of the best moves I’ve made at this stage in my career. The impact in terms of visibility and credibility has been huge. Now when I’m introduced to people, I’m not only a business coach and consultant, I’m also an author.
As a direct result of the book, my speaking engagements have increased by almost 50 percent. Many of the organizations who invite me to speak buy my book and give it to the attendees. That, of course, brings in additional revenues and further promotes my services.
On several occasions, it’s opened doors to profitable new business. In fact, before the first copy of the book was in my hands, it had already brought in two new consulting contracts that more than paid for its cost.

Mike’s study notes for The Family Foundations Study Bible (Thomas Nelson, 2006) were insightful, concise, and well-written. Mike quickly grasped the complex nature of the assignment and his contribution to the project was much appreciated.
