No, it’s not a treatise on deexcitation mechanisms in strongly-damped, heavy-ion collisions. That was my PhD thesis, and it was easy compared to this one. The most difficult article I have ever written is a 2-page summary of the details surrounding our adopted daughter. It was incredibly difficult for three reasons:
1. The story should fill an entire book. To cut it down to a magazine-length article was excruciating.
2. Every time I think of the reasons my daughter needed adoptive parents, I get so angry that I want to go out and shoot someone.
3. It is profoundly difficult to put into words what my daughter means to me. Nevertheless, I felt like I had to try.
