From Georg: I would like to cordially thank Larry for graciously shouldering the main burden of preparing this new edition for the press. My thanks also go to the For Dummies staff for their essential behind-the-scenes work done.
From Larry: Unless you are truly gifted like my coauthor Georg, writing a book takes a village, and I have many people to thank in mine. Merry of MerryMedia first encouraged me to do this revision. Sri TKV Desikachar and his family have inspired my Yoga path since 1980. My editor, Deborah Myers, was simply grand. My council of advisors is always there for me: Prof. Zhuo-Yi Qiu, OMD; David Allen, MD; Richard Usatine, MD; Rick Morris, DC; Richard Miller, PhD; Art Brownstein, MD; Mike Sinel, MD; Prof. Sasi Velupillai, Steve Ostrow, JD; and my personal assistant, Jenna Entwistle.
Michael Lewis at Wiley initiated this revision project, and his patience and persistence made it happen. Thanks also go to Carol Susan Roth, our book agent, and our editorial team at Wiley, led by Chrissy Guthrie and Megan Knoll who are both talented and compassionate.
I am very grateful to our photographer, Adam Latham, and our 21 models starring Jeffrey Aronson, Michael Aronson, Deborah Barry, Holly Beaty, Anna Brown, Chauncey Dennis, Lili Foster, Mia Foster, Terra Gold, Eden Goldman, Anna Inferrera, Marvin Jordana, Chris Joseph, the Ketterhagen family: Kourtney, Luke, Mangala, and Prakash, Dolly Payne, Tony Ransdell, Heidi Rayden, and Vivian Richman.
