Dedication To the handful of people I ve known in this crazy society who somehow manage to keep proper perspective on money, and have helped me to do the same: Arun, Auggie, Marc, Michael, Robert, Susan, and Vicki and Joe. Author s Acknowledgments This being my second Dummiesbook, I d like to thank for a second time all the good people at Wiley, many of whom were involved in my first Dummies project, Exchange Traded Funds For Dummies.We re becoming like old friends! I m so glad that you guys assigned Joan Friedman once again as the project editor. If Moody s gave editors ratings, as it does bonds, Joan would certainly be rated Aaa. Thanks to some of my colleagues in the investment world, especially Mari lyn Cohen, official tech consultant on this book, who knows bonds better than anyone on the planet and provided me with invaluable insight into the behind the curtains world of bond trading. And my great appreciation to Michael Pace, an extremely sharp certified financial planner, fellow member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), and excellent catcher of errors and inserter of added good information. Thanks to Brenda Lange and David Kohn, fellow writers and members of the American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA), for their literary input. I also appreciate the help of all the number crunchers and media liaisons at Morningstar, as well as some very helpful folks at the U.S. Treasury, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Special thanks go to Rebecca Cohen at Vanguard. And thanks to my literary agent, Marilyn Allen, for her continued good repre sentation in the tangled and complicated world of book publishing. Some others who provided very helpful input are mentioned throughout the pages of the book. I appreciate your help, one and all. Oh, I almost forgot . . . Thank you , Little Pepper (my daughter), for your illustrations! 01_134597 ffirs.qxp 8/23/07 11:11 PM Page vii
