"When I wrote the review paper 20 years ago, I had no idea that it would have such an impact on the subject and still be widely read, even today. It has been a thrill beyond description, something that really makes you believe that you have made a difference in your profession. That is the biggest reward to me -- to see the impact of the paper and hear the thanks of so many colleagues who have benefited from it. Receiving an award for it is just the icing on the cake!"
