Acknowledgments

To my wife, Elizabeth, who suffers all the usual pains and uncertainties of being a writer's wife, and who labored long and hard copyediting the manuscript for this book; to Lester Gorn who taught me most of it; to Prof. Elizabeth Davis for her many great suggestions, enthusiasm, and occasional kick in the pants; to Susan Edmiston for her sharp-eyed editorial help; and to my agent, Susan Zeckendorf, without whom I might still be languishing as an insurance claims adjuster, spending my days calculating the cost of replacing dented bumpers.
