First a special thanks to Rebecca, my wife, whose patience and unwavering support has helped me to see this project through to completion. A big thank you also to all those who have helped with the book; the interviewees in particular, who offered such clear and insightful replies. I would also like to thank my friends and colleagues, near and far, who have offered so much kind advice over the years on subjects in and around those featured in the book.

Thanks for reading. I do translation from French and Swedish to English, so if that's useful to you, feel free to connect and message me on LinkedIn or Twitter.
