    My thanks to all those who have helped me in the writing of this book. In particular Katie Metzler at Sage for her suggestions and contributions, and a special thanks to George Robinson for his invaluable review of the work in progress, which was both needed and appreciated.

    To my family, Jenni, Joe and Olga, for being a constant source of love, fun and meaning. To Christine, my lasting gratitude for helping me choose wisely.

    And finally, to all who carry the ‘pebble’, thanks, attitude is everything.
