Praise for Tom Shroder

Of Tom’s editing, Pulitzer prize-winning columnist and Author Dave Barry says: “Tom Shroder is the best in the business – the rare editor who has the analytical skills to see what needs to be done, and the writing ability to show you, when necessary, exactly how to do it. He is especially good at finding the flaws in long, complex pieces, and getting writers to perform at the highest level they’re capable of. I’d trust him with anything I’ve written.”

The Perfect Storm author Jon Krakauer said: [“Fire on the Horizon: The Untold Story of the Gulf Oil Disaster,”] is one of the best disaster books I’ve ever read. I tore through it like a novel but with the queasy knowledge that the whole damn thing is true. A phenomenal feat of journalism.”

Shroder’s editing project, Top-Secret America: The Rise of the New American Security State, by Dana Priest and Bill Arkin, was a New York Times bestseller. Of his editing, two-time Pulitzer winner Priest said, “[Tom] is a master at pacing, tension and drama, and knows how to pull them out of a reporter’s notebook like a rabbit from a hat.”
