FROM HY BLOOM
To Resa, who made life happen for me while I wrote, researched, edited, and bitched.
Words can’t express my love and appreciation.
To Sam, whose natural curiosity about things, including about many of the subjects in this book, served as
a solid testing ground for trying to explain things in the most straightforward manner possible.
To Nellie-Belle, Otis (and Wilbur) — man’s best friends indeed.
Without the support, love, and tolerance from my family regarding the amount of time
and attention this project took, I would have likely thrown the pen in some time ago.
And, to my late brother Marty, who, although not one for delving into the psychological realm,
couldn’t keep his unconscious from spilling over the pride he took in my accomplishments.
FROM RICHARD D. SCHNEIDER
To my beautiful wife Lan, whose love and support keep me strong.
And, to Heidi; Erik; Nils; Michael; Leif; my mother, Ruth; and my sisters, Ann and Laura,
who ensure that my life is rich and full of interests well beyond the pages of this text.
FROM BOTH EDITORS
Lastly, we dedicate this book to Solomon and Jenny Horowitz, whose three sons, Moses, Samuel,
and Jerome, together with their friend, Louis Fineberg, provided the message of tenacity,
a measure of inspiration, and much comic relief at dicult times.
