I am indebted to my wife, Lisa Glatt, for encouraging me to write this book and for her invaluable help throughout the process. I am grateful to my parents, James and Nancy Hernandez, for their bottomless love and support. Fistbumps to Ernie Liang for giving a hoot (even though he dumped an earlier version of the manuscript in Hong Kong) and to Alex Lemon for Catface, Haterade, and finite wisdom. Many thanks to my brilliant editor, Lauren Velevis, for her wonderful ideas and sharp eyes, Michael Stearns, and everyone at HarperCollins. And finally, a big thank-you to the good people at Writers House, especially my enthusiastic and dedicated agent, Steven Malk.
