We acknowledge the help of our colleagues at Elsevier who guided us through this project: Anne Altepeter, senior project manager, and Ellen Wurm, developmental editor. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the extraordinary efforts of Liz Williams, who interpreted so much poor handwriting while typing the manuscripts, and, of course, Loren Wilson, executive editor, and Jennifer Presley, editorial assistant, who watched out for all of the behind-the-scenes issues on our behalf.
Finally, we acknowledge and thank all the clinical microbiologists, scientists, clinicians, and educators who have over many years been our colleagues and who, through their contribution to the field and their communications with us, have made the writing of this and the previous editions possible.
