All in all, in spite of the blood, sweat, and tears that my associates and I have invested in the work, this is essentially John March's book; we have tried to aid the reader without intrusively altering the product. March is not the same man for me that he was when I began the project. What has happened along the way can perhaps best be described as the growth of respect, admiration, and yes, even love. With characteristic candor March made this observation about the process that had already absorbed more than a few years of his life: "Everyone has their own ideas how to do research. I'd say our methods have paid off pretty well. Just takes patience and determination and guts." 3 Without question, John March had all three qualities in abundance.
