For KrisI never quite understood book dedications to spouses/partners/families. I mean, it always seemed like the polite thing to do, but not really necessary. Even while I was writing the bulk of my chapters, it just seemed like something I happened to be doing as part of my work life, completely separate from my home life. Then came the mad, unending rush at the end and the ensuing review and editing phase. I basically disappeared from home life entirely for about three months. Now, I get it.
Thank you, Kris, for supporting me in this project; for dealing with the house, the kids, and everything else when I was nonexistent; and for still being here when I finally reappeared.
For All of My FriendsYou heard me complain one too ...
