Many Sun manuals have a standard preface that includes a section on "Who Should Use This Book." The wording is something like this: "The MasterBlaster Sunscreen Protection Kit Guide is intended for the system administrator whose duties include applying and monitoring
sunscreen on children under 10. Familiarity with basic containment procedures and with the warning signals of sunburn and heat exhaustion are helpful."
