Acknowledgments

We both thank Peter Workman for being our matchmaker, and our editor, Ruth Sullivan, for her steadfast faith in the project and her relentless pursuit of clarity and simplicity in the writing and organization of the material.

Larry Katz wishes to thank Doris Iarovici, his spouse, for her critical insights, advice, and editorial assistance, and Bonnie Kissell, for unflagging administrative support of this project.

Manning Rubin thanks Jane Rubin, for bearing the brunt of his burying himself in the research, writing, and rewriting he has been obsessed with for two years, and for her levelheaded observations that helped the book. And he thanks Larry for the voluminous work he has produced in keeping this book alive.
