So many people helped me birth this weird baby, and I am humbled and grateful for all their support.
First, thanks to Jess, my wife, for doing the illustrations that complete this book, giving it the visual character I had hoped for. Thanks, too, for the support and for putting up with me when I was in crazy-eyed writer mode. (P.S. It feels bizarre to thank my wife via a programming book’s front matter.)
Thanks to my friends and colleagues at McKinsey who read early revisions and encouraged me to keep writing. Foremost among them are Pat Shaughnessy, Alex Rothenberg, Thomas Newton, Jalil Fanaian, Chris Parker, Mark Daggett, Christian Lilley, and Mike Morreale. Y’all are so great; please move to Durham.
Thanks to my friend Bridget ...
