I dedicate this book to my girls (Stacy, Anij, and Saliah), one of which was born during the development of this book. Without all of you, none of this would be possible.
To my wife and daughters (Jackie, Olivia, and Victoria): It is from you that I draw my strength, for you that I have the ambition to try to “do better,” and to you that I dedicate this book. Thank you for the support and understanding throughout this project.
