I would like to express my sincere appreciation to my Developmental Editor, Gary O’Brien who, as always, has provided invaluable guidance throughout the development of this edition. In truth, Gary should share authorship with me on this project. Through his efforts he has demonstrated ownership and a personal investment in making this text the best it can be. His input, patience with me, and dedication to this project has been indispensable and I truly respect his opinions and direction on all of our projects. I would be hard pressed to complete any of our projects without his help.

For this revision, instead of having a reviewer take on the daunting and time-consuming task of reviewing all 29 chapters of this 1,000+ page text, I identified specific individuals who have distinguished themselves as content experts to review a specific chapter or, in some cases, chapters related to their area of expertise. These reviewers have provided critical, constructive, detailed comments and suggestions relative to the existing content in each chapter based on the most current and best available evidence in the professional literature. They have also offered suggestions for specific updates or additions that needed to be made and identified material that was no longer supported by the available evidence.

I cannot thank them enough for being part of this revision process. I sincerely appreciate their interest and commitment in helping to continue the legacy of this book as an important resource in the education of our students.
