I would first and foremost like to thank my wife Nancy and our children: Chris, Kyle, Logan, and Sydney for putting up with another book. Her support has been invaluable.
I'd like to thank tech editor Dan Hunsucker for all his hard work, expertise, and extraordinary ability to decipher what I was writing.
Thanks to Willem Knibbe, David Clark, Pete Gaughan, Christine O'Connor, Tiffany Taylor, and the others whose names I don't know but who worked very hard to try to make me look smart.
I also want to extend my sincere thanks to Lynn Allen, Alan Jacobs, Joe Astroth, Denise Harvey, and all of the Autodesk family who supported and encouraged me during this effort.
