This book is edited my my friend Warren Estabrooks, a legend in the field of AV practice.
The chapters are written by friends and colleagues of mine. It's release is bittersweet as I would have too liked to have potentially liked to have  helped authored a chapter but, back when the book was being written our family was reeling from a dramatic and unexpected death at the same time as my sister-in-law was battling cancer. Family always comes first!

Here is the information from the publisher and I quote....
