This book is printed on acid-free paper responsibly manufactured from sustainable forestry in which at least two trees are planted for each one used for paper production.
I dedicate this book to my beautiful son Shane, born during the revision of Chapter 6. I include his photograph in the hope that a Hollywood producer, looking for a child film star, will spot it and immediately offer to make us suitably rich. In the future, I also hope to use it to embarrass him during his teenage years, by showing it to all his cool, sophisticated friends.
