(Joyce) #1



would like to thank the four Pfeiffer personnel who were instrumental to the develop-
ment of this book. First, I would like to thank Laura Reizman for her help in working
with all of the details involved in marketing this book, as well as other administrative
tasks. Next, my gratitude to Kathleen Dolan Davies in handling all of the production
aspects with great skill and, especially, patience. Special thanks go to Dawn Kilgore for
once again helping with final production elements. Finally, I cannot thank and praise
enough acquisitions editor Martin Delahoussaye. He played a pivotal role in working
with me to “birth” this project during its initial conceptualization and then in working
out the overall structure and format. All of these people, who work in a relatively high-
stress business, were an absolute delight to work with. Thank you all.
