DedicationTo the woman who knew me back when this journey began, and is still there through three editions, the love of my life, Merridith.
In memoriamDuring the course of writing the first edition our field lost one of its most well-loved and respected pioneers, Don Pearson a.k.a. Dr Don. I had the good fortune to work with Don and receive his wisdom. He was there when it all began and is still missed. More recently we lost Tom Young, and Mike Shannon who contributed so much to the industry and to me personally. And finally, I lost my brother Chris who was an inspiration to all who knew him.
