"It is too rare that in publishing a book one has a purely positive experience with a colleague. Ken Hassman is the most wonderful indexer. He created the index for my book Empire of Difference, Cambridge UP, under the pressure of a deadline, promptly, effectively and elegantly. Ken accepted to work on this book even though this was not his immediate expertise, revealing great insights, mastering every paragraph to bring out the most accurate and useful index. As we worked on the index, Ken helped even more by engaging in the work, talking about it, understanding it and working with it. I know readers are grateful for his work, as am I, and, as will future authors that work with him."

"I am a senior production editor in the medical division at Oxford University Press. I have used the services of Hassman Indexing Services for a year and have come to rely upon Ken Hassman for many of my projects. He has been such a joy to work with that I have recommended him to my colleagues.

Hassman Indexing Services is everything you want in an indexer. Ken is always accommodating and easy to work with. No project is too small or too large; simple or complex. He is very professional; responds quickly to emails and phone calls. He complies with author requests and delivers the manuscript on time. Authors are always pleased with his work.

I am confident that new clients of Hassman Indexing Services will be as satisfied as we have been."

"Over the past few years, Ken Hassman has prepared approximately over fifty indexes for Cambridge University Press in subject areas ranging from science and medicine to the social sciences. He was worked mostly in our Word workflow, embedding index tags in the Word file at the copyediting stage so that we have linked indexes in typeset page proofs.

Ken has been very pleasant to work with and always meets his deadlines. Our authors have given positive feedback of his indexes and he is wiling to work with them to make sure they are pleased with the final index. He works within our budget and schedule.

I highly recommend Ken as an indexer."

“I've contracted with Ken for back-of-book indexing of Greenhaven Press titles. He consistently returned assignments on time or early, and we could always count on him for last-minute and rush jobs, which helped us maintain tight production schedules. Ken's indexes are accurate, thorough, and audience-appropriate. He's very focused on quality, meeting specifications, and maintaining a positive relationship with clients. He is a pleasure to work with.”
