My work on this book is dedicated to the memory of my father, Harry Snyder, and in honor of my mother, Martha Snyder, who inspired me to strive for excellence in helping others. I also dedicate this to my sons, Ciaran and Madden, whom I hope, in turn, to inspire in the same way. And I dedicate this to my wife, Angela, who helps me to be the best person I can.

To my grandfather, Mani Ram Jandial, for creating a family foundation of both loyalty and audacity, principles from which I continue to benefit and hope to pass on to my own beloved sons, Ronak, Kai, and Zain.
