Jay's prior positions include deputy editor of Outside magazine; editorial director of a magazine group at Rodale, Inc.; chair of the Ivy League Magazine Network; and founding editor of Attache magazine. David Drummond has made his living as an actor for over twenty-five years, appearing on stages large and small throughout the country and in Seattle, Washington, his hometown.

Praise For Thank You for Arguing

"[Listeners] who want to terrify underlings into submission will learn from Heinrichs that speaking softly while letting your eyes betray cold fury does the trick handily." ---Publishers Weekly
