Sometimes a book is written that is so comprehensive, so imagina- tive, and so clever as to be dubbed a “classic”. In literature, there are the works of William Shakespeare, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Agatha Christie, to name but a few. Among classic reference publications, one could cite such luminaries as the Encyclopedia Britannica, Webster’s Dictionary, and the Physicians Desk Reference. With so many “flash-in- the-pan” books that will be here today, gone tomorrow, it is truly my honor to announce that a genuine CLASSIC book has been written by one of AOB’s own members.
