Thank you to my incredible team of contributors, most of whom have been with me through all four editions of this book. I am honored to be in such stellar company. The contributors bring a wonderful wealth of collective knowledge that reflects all the roles of publishing—author, editor, peer reviewer, designer, publisher—along with a strong commitment to help nurses share their expertise through publishing. I truly appreciate how they have generously shared their talents. I also appreciate the many others who read portions of the book and gave valuable feedback.
Thanks to Joan Borgatti for first linking anatomy to writing and to Patricia Dwyer Schull for her insightful comments and unfailing support.
Special thanks to the talented staff members at Sigma Theta Tau International, who always make authors look great: to Meaghan O’Keeffe and Erin Geile, for their expert editing; Karen Davis, for proofreading; Kim Scott of Bumpy Design, for outstanding design and page composition; and Rebecca Batchelor for designing an excellent cover.
Publishing is truly a team effort!
