(p. ix) Acknowledgements
We thank our reviewers, Alan Goldstein, Tom Grisso, Kirk Heilbrun, and David Vore, for their helpful guidance. The contribution from our research assistants, Kate O’Brien, and Mira Taitz, Hielkje Verbrugge, in compiling tables, references, and key words was invaluable. In the 15 years that Bill and I have collaborated on projects, he has proven to be a stellar colleague and a formidable forensic scientist-practitioner. His enthusiasm and professionalism made this work a pleasure.
I want to thank my coauthor, Jane, for her hard work on this project. She is a wonderful editor and a great collaborator, even though she lives on the other side of the planet. I have appreciated the advice and kind words of Dr. Debra Saslawsky, who has always provided a sounding board for ideas. I could not have done this work without the constant support and care from my dear wife, Cheryl.
