There are two matters I wish to disclaim concerning the content of this book. The first has to do with the use of obscenities and the second with the accuracy or authority of linked-site content.

The only obscene words used in Into the Abyss are those used by interview subjects, and they are few and far between. A few sites linked to this book, however, do contain obscene words and images. I linked to those sites because their content expands upon the topic being discussed in Into the Abyss.

A link to an external web site does not guarantee the accuracy or authority of the site, although considerable care was taken to connect to the best web sites available. The English Department at St. Louis University maintains a site useful for determining the authority of a Web page.
