Note from the publisher:
While this book intends to illustrate successful Lebanese in the diaspora, by the nature of its work, from time to time, it may draw some contradictions on some included personalities. While we hope this will be minimal, we do hope the rest of the book serves its intended purpose.
Eligibility for inclusion in this book was based on contribution to and success in the community. Of course, since the time the book was originally assembled (early 70's) , measurments and standards may have changed, but the foundation should still be the same. This eligibility was very subjective. It is as the author saw it, and has no official status. It is also, by no mean, exclusive or exhaustive. There may be many many more Lebanese emigrants deserving listing in the book, but were not (through no fault of theirs of the author's). This is pretty much the norm in all Who's Who publications.
