I am indebted to my wife Donna who has helped me in more ways than imaginable. I do not think I can thank her enough. I would like to thank Michael Webb for his relentless assistance in all aspects of the book. He has been my most reliable source and I could always count on him. I also want to thank my graduate assistants Issam Abu-Ghallous and Brian Carriere. They have provided many hours of help with all aspects of the process. Without the help of Mike, Issam, and Brian, the book would not have been completed. I also would like to thank Madeline Gillette, Anthony Calandrillo, and Matt Orzechowski who read parts of the manuscript.
