To my partner Kim, thank you for your love and patience while I spent days, nights, and weekends writing this book. Your support is everything to me. I'm back now.
To Fish and Chips, we can't wait to meet you.
To Debra Kelly, Tom Welsh, Steve Anglin, and everyone at Apress, thank you for guiding me through the publishing labyrinth and for providing candid feedback to improve my book. Your good humor through the ups and downs of my pregnancy is deeply appreciated.
To my technical reviewers James Pearce, Rocco Georgi, and Todd Emerson, thank you for your detailed analysis of every chapter of this book. ...
