I've tried to impart this sense of excitement and fun in the book by indicating, in a manner appropriate for this level of text, where knowledge is new and where gaps in our knowledge remain. Following is a partial list of the topical additions and updates made to the eighth edition. New figures added to support the coordinating text discussion are also indicated.
