Many people made critical contributions to both the first and second editions of The Cell, and it is a pleasure to thank them for their efforts.

The project was initiated by Patrick Fitzgerald at ASM Press. His efforts were carried on for the second edition by Jeff Holtmeier, who provided a continued source of encouragement and support. The help of Karen Jones and Norma Davis in obtaining reviews of the second edition is also greatly appreciated.

Both the first and second editions of The Cell benefited greatly from the many scientists who gave generously of their time to read and critique the text. The reviewers of both editions are listed separately on the following pages, and I am deeply grateful for their efforts and advice. It is a special pleasure to acknowledge the help of Elaine Lai (Brandeis University), who read and critiqued the entire text of the second edition, providing extremely valuable advice from her perspective as both a scientist and a teacher of cell biology.

The production of the second edition of The Cell was again undertaken by Andy Sinauer and his colleagues at Sinauer Associates. I am delighted to thank Andy and Dean Scudder for their continued help and encouragement throughout all stages of the project. It is also a pleasure to acknowledge the superb efforts of Joyce Zymeck, who did a wonderful job editing the text, David McIntyre, who obtained the many new micrographs included in the book, and Christopher Small, who was responsible for production of the completed volume. The artwork is the product of Patrick Lane of the J/B Woolsey studio, who once again succeeded in turning my rough sketches into an outstanding art program. The cover illustration was created especially for the second edition of The Cell by David S. Goodsell of the Scripps Research Institute, and I am most grateful for his contribution.

Finally, it is a pleasure to acknowledge the careful and cheerful work of Sean Valles, who compiled and copied the many research papers I used as references to bring the second edition of The Cell up to date.
