Many thanks to John Marcham, former editor of the Cornell Alumni News, who trained me; to E. B.White and Will Strunk Jr., who were my mentors through their classic book; to Rob Kanigel and Jackie Wehmueller, who egged me on; to Jack Goellner, Katherine Hancock, and Mary Ruth Yoe, who showed the manuscript no mercy; to the many patient scientists who coached me on their work; to my friends and colleagues at other university magazines, who were always just a phone call away; to the dozens of writers with whom I sat on the floor and argued over manuscripts until we got it right; and to the readers of this book, who I hope will carry on the good work with the care and integrity I have valued in all these people.
