To my wife, Becky. She has been my encourager, listening ear and motivator throughout the entirety of this project. Hopefully she gets more out of this than just a free copy of the book. — G. Bradley Schaefer
To my mother, Jean, and my sister, Lisa. Their patient encouragement helped make this an especially rewarding project. In addition, with his excellent work ethic and sense of humor, working with my longtime friend and colleague, Brad Schaefer, could not have been more enjoyable. — James N. Thompson, Jr.
