ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This book was written with the help of what could be called a Committee.  The contributions of eight people were such that they deserve more than the usual expression of gratitude, or dedication of a book.Lessons in Lifemanship A book about How to Improve Relationships and Enjoy Them More; How to Use Principles in the Family, in the Workplace, and in Other Areas of Life for Your Benefit and the Benefit of Others; How to Choose a Vocation, Become an Entrepreneur, Get a Job and Handle a Job Interview; How to Choose Volunteer Activities and Enjoy Them; Ways to Improve Board Meetings

First is my wife Rubie.  It is great to have a personal counselor in life, and it is most convenient if that counselor is also your very compatible roommate.  My five children, four daughters and a son, now all adults, take active parts in the book.  You will recognize them because their first names all begin with "B".  My loyal friend Dotty Palmintier, who runs my office, is fortunately an expert in grammar and spelling.  And how can you do better than a sister, Helen Wagner, who, as a university English teacher, has corrected thousands of themes?

I sincerely asked the committee to be very forthright in criticisms of grammar, spelling, and especially content.  And they were.  A misused word was circled with "Ugh" written beside it.  In another place a marginal note stated, "There's too much going on here."  (There was.)  But they also made very helpful and constructive suggestions, positive in nature, not just corrective.

More than anything, they were encouragers, and for this I am very grateful.  Encouragement is an important subject in this book.
