Good book indexers are worth their weight in precious metals. That’s because an inclusive, accurate index is a key component for any nonfiction book. As The Chicago Manual of Style puts it: “Every serious book should have an index if it is to achieve its maximum usefulness.”
If you have a nonfiction book in the pipeline, you might want to consider contacting Galen L. Schroeder, who has been a top-flight free-lance book indexer since 2001. Schroeder also is a Vietnam veteran, who did a 1967-68 tour, and is a retired Army officer in Fargo, North Dakota. A member of the American Society of Indexers, he holds a Ph.d in Agronomy and Plant Physiology from North Dakota State University.
