“Life is no brief candle to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I've got a hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

 

George Bernard Shaw

Irish playwright (1856–1950)

 

 

The editors were fortunate indeed to have outstanding mentors who dedicated their professional lives to the development of our generation in the specialty. Through their guidance, wisdom, and actions, they truly handed the torch to us. As their progeny, we are ever grateful for both their professional guidance and their personal friendship. In recognition of their influence on us individually, and the specialty overall, we dedicate this book to:
