The two co-authors shared overall responsibility for the entire book, including recruiting the other contributors and dealing with the editorial staff at the publisher, London-based Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group.
Co-author John Doorley wrote the chapters on Reputation Management, Media Relations, and Community Relations.

Under his leadership the NYU program became the world’s largest graduate program in its field and the one named America’s Best Public Relations Education Program in 2009 and 2010. Before joining NYU he was a full-time faculty member in the School of Communication at Rutgers University. Previously, until 2000, John was head of corporate communication at Merck & Co., Inc., which was named America’s Most Admired Company seven of his 12 years there (Annual Fortune Magazine survey). He is the co-author with Fraser Seitel of Rethinking Reputation: How PR Trumps Marketing and Advertising in the New Media World.

Reviews of the Third Edition
Initial feedback from those who have read the galley proof of the book, including peer reviewers, has been very supportive. Among the reviews are the following:
- “The authors have found the right balance between academic rigor and practical application and between the foundational concepts of public relations and their application. It has been my text of choice for the past four years and will continue to be in the future.” —Philip Herr, Fairfield University and SVP of Millward Brown
- “Reputation Management provides just the right breadth and depth of information to give the reader a full understanding of how to create and maintain organizational reputation within the context of the current business climate. Full of case studies and useful examples, this text is a practical and accessible tool for understanding the communication processes underlying the practice of reputation management.” —Lisa V. Chewning, Penn State University–Abington
- “Reputation Management is more than an advanced organizational communication or public relations text. It connects theory to professional practice, making a strong business case for building and maintaining reputation as an organizational asset. Communication and business students, as well as professionals, will benefit from reading this book —Jennie Donohue, Marist College
- “This book is the real deal—engaging and up-to-date ‘real world’ examples combined with communication and managerial theory. The chapter exercises encourage critical thinking and analysis. Reputation Management is just about the perfect text for anyone who wants to understand how communication works in organizations. I won’t teach corporate communication without this textbook.” —Astrid Sheil, California State University, San Bernardino
