Besides his pursuits as an author and writing consultant, hes a computer guru. He offered insightful suggestions about the text and helped make sure that the book got to Career Press on time, and in the electronic form the publisher needed. Special thanks go to Doris S.Michaels, my literary agent, for her diligence, competence, patience and generosity of spirit. I received the assignment to write this book because of her, and her enthusiasm motivated me from our first conversation about the project to the last word. My father, Michael Cohen, always told me that if youre going to do a job, do it right, no matter what it is. Above everything except family, he revered education and learning. He taught me by example that one of the highest human endeavors is gathering knowledge and using it to exercise wisdom. This book is dedicated to his memory. So hats off to all the Michaels! Thanks to everyone at Career Pressespecially Ron Fry, president; Betsy Sheldon, editor in chief; Ellen Scher, associate editor; Jane A.Brody, editor; and Fred Nachbaur, marketing managerfor their encouragement and all their efforts.
