I would like to thank my family for their love, support, and inspiration. Thanks to my mom for teaching me to love books and for getting me that summer job at the college library back in ’89. Thanks to Mikki and Keenan for their understanding while I was spending evenings and weekends locked away.
I’m pleased to thank Kunal Mittal for the insightful reviews and for the enthusiasm. Thanks to Trina MacDonald at Pearson for her patience and for bringing me the idea for this book in the first place.
Most of all, I want to thank my amazing wife, Jamie. She made many sacrifices to make this book possible. I offer my deepest thanks to her for consistently helping me become more than I ever could have become on my own.
