the previous edition. Or so I thought. But, PAML 4e has presented its share of challenges.
First, and foremost, is the fact that this is the first project (out of three previous Atlas editions, three
editions of Microbiology Laboratory Theory and Application, one edition of Microbiology Laboratory
Theory and Application—Brief Edition, and three editions of Exercises for the Laboratory Manual) I
have worked on without my longtime friend and colleague, Burt Pierce. Burt made the courageous and
healthy decision to retire and move to Portland, OR, to enjoy life with his wife, three dogs, and two cats
(notice the absence of any microbes in the family). Yet, while he was not an active participant, his influence remains in this edition. A majority of his written and photographic contributions are still here, and
I have tried to live up to his eye for detail, his demand for excellence, and his dedication to knowing our
readership. His philosophy was that even though we were writing for undergraduate students and not
professionals, there was no excuse for “dumbing down the material”; he had a steadfast faith in the
intelligence of our readers. Long ago, I was impressed by a speech made by a former San Diego City
College president, in which she appealed for teamwork between faculty, staff and administration with
the phrase, “None of us is as good as all of us.” She was right about the college, and it has been equally
applicable to the books Burt and I have co-authored. Our skills complemented one another and the
books were clearly better because of it. But beyond the production of books, and the associated blood,
sweat, and tears, what mattered most was the friendship and satisfaction of a collective “job well done.”
As the old beer commercial said, “(Burt), I love ya, man!”
