What is the difference between a forward and a prologue? I am writing a non-fiction book.

Thanks

Prologues are descriptions of what happened before the plot in a fictional work commences. They are to be avoided.

A forward is used in a non-fiction book to name names, give necessary information, before the narration begins. They are acceptable but a little dated in style.

Someone else should be along in a moment to provide better information and refute my statement about prologues.
