Acknowledgments

We would like to thank the following people who took the time to review the first edition of this manuscript: Donald Bagert, Texas Tech University; Susan Gauch, University of Kansas; Pamela Lawhead, University of Mississippi; Pat Nettnin, Finger Lakes Community College; Bobbie Othmer, Westminster College of Salt Lake City; Suzanne Pawlan-Levy, Allan Hancock College; Carol Roberts, University of Maine; and Robert Strader, Stephen F. Austin State University. Thanks also to all of you who took the time to answer our electronic survey concerning this third edition.

A special thanks to John McCormick, University of Northern Iowa, Mark Headington, University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse, and Dan Joyce. John and Dan graciously allowed us to use some of their analogies from Ada Plus Data Structures and Object-Oriented Data Structures Using Java, respectively. Mark's ideas, suggestions, and sharp eyes were invaluable. Thanks also to the students at Uppsala University in Sweden who used the final draft of the manuscript of the second edition in a course in the fall of 1997. Because non-English readers see what is written, not what they expect to see, their comments were invaluable in cleaning up ambiguous wording.

Thanks to my husband Al, our children and grandchildren too numerous to name, and our dogs, Maggie, who keeps my feet warm, and Chrissie, whose role in life is to keep the house in turmoil and mud.

A virtual bouquet of roses to the people who have worked on this book: Mike and Sigrid Wile, along with our Jones and Bartlett family. Theresa DiDonato, a jack-of-all-trades who helped with the survey; Jenny Mclsaac, who jumped directly into the frying pan on her first day; Nathan Schultz, whose "can do" attitude is a joy to work with; and Michael Stranz and Amy Rose, whose team effort sustains all of us. Amy, thank heavens this production schedule was a little more leisurely than the last-but not by much!

N. D.
