Our deepest gratitude goes to:
Joe and Jere, for understanding our need to flee to the woods, the ocean, or the spa in order to make this book a reality. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Our family and friends, for your concern and support along the way.
Our faithful and loving canines, Chloe and Sophia, who slept on our laps as we wrote and gently reminded us to take time to enjoy the simple things in life.
Christa, Karen, and Liz, for believing in us and guiding us throughout the journey.
Finally, to our students—past and present—who inspired us through their journeys of research and evidence-based practice, to write a sensible and lighthearted book to ease the process.
A special thank you from Angela to Dr. Julie Beck for contributing to the Adult & Transformative Learning Influences on the Inquiry Process dialogue in Chapter 2.
