Acknowledgments

Although authors initiate the writing of a book, it takes a team to finish it. I'm especially grateful to the following people:

Allen Armstrong, Captain, USCG Ret., my husband, for his irreplaceable support.

Peter Bardwick, my son, and my brother, Stephen Hardis, for their essays and interest.

Tim Moore, my publisher, for his incisive insight.

Henning Gutmann, my agent, for his wisdom and guidance.

Russ Hall, my editor, for his transformation of the manuscript.

Corinne Gregory, my technical reviewer, for her grasp of what I was trying to say.

Helen Bloomfield, my assistant, for accomplishments that are always above and beyond.

Jan Schwartz, Production Editor, for pulling it all together and mastering every detail while under unremitting time pressure.

I'd also like to thank BusinessWeek for permission to reprint their illuminating article “Like It Or Not, You've Got Mail”; Forbes ASAP for permission to reprint a snippet of Eric Pfeiffer's ode, “'Tis a Joy to Be Simple…”; Fortune for permission to reprint an excerpt from John Reed's excellent article, “Reflections on a Culture Clash”; HarperCollins publishers for permission to reprint an excerpt from Barbara Kingsolver's award-winning novel, The Poisonwood Bible; New York Magazine for permission to reprint part of Michael Wolf's insightful essay on “the e-decade”; and Random House/Bantam Books publishers for permission to reprint from Elizabeth George's excellent book In Pursuit of the Proper Sinner.

For these authors' thoughtful work I am most grateful.
