Acknowledgments

As usual, it takes many people to produce a text­book; such is the case with the sixth edition. The editorial group at Wadsworth is excellent.

We also want to thank the reviewers of the sixth edition, who provided extremely helpful and insightful commentary that improved the book: Lisa M. Renzi, University of Georgia; Michael Trent, Triton College; Terry Webster, University of California, Irvine; and Ronaele Whittington, University of Hawaii. We would also like to thank Tarra Jefferson, Marisa Arroyo, Guy von Wiegand, and Daniel Pierce for their valuable work on the lit­erature search and references. We would also like to thank Audrey Duarte for her invaluable comments on the Neuroscience chapter.

Finally, to a group too often overlooked—the sales representatives. Without you none of this would have any payoff. You are an extension of us and the whole Wadsworth editorial and production team. What a great group of hard working folks you are!

Thanks to you all. Live long and prosper!

John C. Cavanaugh Fredda Blanchard-Fields
