Te sponsoring editor for the last edition, Serina Beaupar-
lant, has a jazzy new title, “Editor-in-Chief.” Even with a slew
of new duties, she is resolute about producing the best edu-
cational product possible—both in textbook and media. Her
replacement for this edition, who took over a large number
of Serina’s duties, is Gretchen Puttkamer, a real go-getter. We
haven’t seen too much of Gretchen because she spends most of
her time in the field talking to professors, students, and anyone
else that will listen to her. Also contributing were several oth-
ers that we rarely get to talk to, including: editorial assistants
Lisa Damerel and John Maas, managing editor Debbie Cogan,
Stacey Weinberger, who has been our expert manufacturing
buyer for years, and our crackerjack marketing manager, Derek
Perrigo, who goes the extra mile to make sure professors are
enlightened about special features of the text. Kudos also to our
media staff—Lauren Fogel, director of media development, Ai-
mee Pavy, media producer, and the entire media team for PAL
3.0 and PhysioEx 9.0.
Benjamin Cummings spares no effort in its drive to pub-
lish an accurate and instructive book. Over 400 reviews were
commissioned, enlisting comments and suggestions from both
generalist academicians and specialists in various niches of
anatomy and physiology. Tese reviewers’ contributions have
been of inestimable value in the continuing development of this
text. We also want to thank the many students and colleagues
who were generous with their time and comments. Tey did
not always tell us what we wanted to hear, but assured of the
sincerity of their criticism, we always listened. Input from the
following reviewers resulted in the continued excellence and
accuracy of this text.
