Meredith McGinnis, Julian Pavia, and Cindy Berman. A special thanks to my editor, Rick Horgan, who I can say, without any hint of subjectivity, is simply the best nonfiction editor in the world, as well as a man of great patience. Thanks again and again to all of you for another wonderful adventure. A huge hug to my great friend and amazing editor Kristin Loberg, who kept me on track and added so many great ideas to the book. Thanks K, for sticking with me through the entire ordeal of book #2. And thanks to my assistant, Thea, for keeping the train on the tracks, as she always does. And thank you to the amazing Mr. David Hathaway at Barnes & Noble for helping us nail the title over lunch one fine day in New York. I want to especially thank the team led by Freddie and Mitzi Rick, who absolutely made magic happen with the book, the cover design, and the Payback Time Workshops. Big thanks to Michael Hutchison, John Kilcullen, Judy Hackett, Karen Hutto, Glen Chandler, Shannon Johnson, Jake McCurdy, Bob Stammers, and Sangram Vajre.

But, of course, writing is not all about the professionals; it’s also about the team at home. In my case, none of this happens without the love and support of Alaina and Danielle, who are off doing school, and Daniel and Hunter and Melissa, who had to deal with me holed up for months in my backroom cave. They tell me I started writing each morning sitting straight up, and by the time they headed for bed I’d be slumped nearly prone with the computer on my stomach. I don’t know. I get in the zone. Personal hygiene suffers. I don’t shave. I take irregular showers. I sleep four hours a night. Melissa was complicit in this degeneration. She plies me with Red Bull and puts meals on the side table and even reheats them if I don’t notice I’m hungry. No way does this book make the deadline without her and the boys’ support. Trust me on this: You don’t want to live with a writer unless the book is done. When we’re not writing, we’re really great people. Really.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
