Special thanks to Pam, Michael, Jenn, Sanford, and Jeff at Unnamed Publisher. This book, like everything at Flat World, is a team effort and is better for it! I am honored to be a small part of a much larger movement to increase open access to educational materials. Unnamed Publisher is inspirational.

Finally, Lisa, my partner and spouse, was always supportive and quick with the “so what?” requests for clarification. Thank you to everyone who made a suggestion, made a correction, or otherwise contributed to this project.
