I dedicate this book to John, my husband and coauthor, for encouraging (badgering) me to keep writing and finish this book. Without his inspiration, I would not be the mad woman I am.
I would like to thank my wife, Rachelle, for all the time and energy she has put into the book. Without her, there would be no book. And of course, as always, I’d like to thank the mad man.
