The Oxford Handbook of Expertise had its origins in conversations within and between the self-organizing community of scholars engaged in the development of the field of Naturalistic Decision Making and primarily as a response to a shared observation that our wealth of research on expertise needed to be creatively collated in one place.

We were delighted that Gary Klein and Robert Hoffman having engaged an international community of scholars and practitioners and fostered a curiosity for examining and enhancing expert cognition, agreed to support the development of the handbook. We dedicate this Handbook to both of them. Paul, Jan Maarten, Julie and Emilie have been part of the NDM community in different guises, for several decades and supported by The MITRE Corporation, USA, Michigan Technological University, USA, Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research TNO, the University of Bath, UK, and Roth Cognitive Engineering, USA, were provided with the time and space to complete the task of putting the handbook together. Although much of this work was completed at the weekends and often during vacations via skype - our enthusiasm for the project was constantly ensured by Paul who kept us on track with his passion for including a multi-disciplinary range of work on expertise.

Our sincere thanks go to Martin Baum, Senior Commissioning Editor, and Charlotte Holloway, Senior Assistant Commissioning Editor for Psychology and Neuroscience at Oxford University Press for her continued support and insight. A particular thank you to Charles Lauder, Jr. Gayathri Manoharan, and the Oxford production team for their great attention to detail. Last, but not least our enormous thanks go to the authors of this volume whose work continues to inspire us alongside our families, colleagues and friends who are always happy to engage in great conversations about expertise.
