Longtime close friend and colleague Roy Thurik uses this chapter to detail his relationship with David, both in and out of Academia. He tells of David being there for him during difficult times and providing invaluable advice when he needed it most. He also tells of his admiration for the man and scholar, the friend and confidante. Thurik's writing gives the reader a glimpse behind the curtain, so that one can see how highly esteemed David is as a pioneer in small business economics.
