To my wonderful family; my wife Caroline and daughter Emily, thank you for putting up with me whilst writing this book.
I have had a great deal of help from friends and colleagues in the industry, especially in respect of the stories featured throughout the book. These include Jeremy Garner, Nick Gray, Bill Hart, Adam Kirby, John Lowery, Simon Marquis, Dominic O’Meara and Rick Sareen, in particular. Thank you also to all those people who preferred not to be mentioned individually! Finally, a special thanks to Andrew Wilder for his many words of wisdom and illustrative examples.
