The author would like to thank the team at AMACOM Books, namely Robert Nirkind, Jim Bessent, and Alice Manning, for all of their hard work on the editing and organization of the manuscript.
I would like to thank my partners worldwide at Jones Day for their unconditional support and encouragement, including our fortieth-consecutive-quarter-leading global M&A department, Robert Profusek, John Hyland, and John Welch, as well as our overall firm leaders, Stephen Brogan, Andrew Kramer, Tim Cullen, and Washington, DC, office leader Mary Ellen Powers. For general research support, I am very grateful for the efforts of Kartikeya Tanna and Kevin Bale. As always, Jo Lynch was a key player in pulling everything together and helping to produce an organized manuscript.
And in perpetuity, I gratefully acknowledge my wife, Judy, my son, Matthew, and my daughter, Jennifer, for tolerating my writing at the dining room table when we could have all been together having fun.
