# [Tex/LaTex] How to add a preface chapter to a book that appears before all chapters and is not numbered as a chapter

chaptersmemoir

I just wrote the preface to my book and I made it a \chapter, but now the preface is Chapter 1 of the book, which is not what I desire. I am using the memoir document class. Does anyone know how to make this preface chapter not really be a chapter?

Use \chapter* instead of \chapter.
