First, I want to thank Amy, Garrett, and Mary Lin for being here for me and supporting me during the long hours I put into this edition. You all are the best! I'd like to thank Melody Layne, my original acquisitions editor at Wiley, for contacting me long ago with this book idea and providing me this great opportunity. I'd also like to thank my new acquisitions editor, Amy Fandrei, for continuing this project and presenting me the opportunity to shape this book into something I'm very proud of.
I'd like to thank my project editor, Jean Nelson. Yet again, you've been more than a pleasure to work with and have added a lot of value to this book. I'd also like to thank Brian Walls, my copy editor, for keeping my focus (and English) in line. Also, many thanks to my technical editor, business colleague, friend, and co-author of Hacking Wireless Networks For Dummies, Peter T. Davis. Again, I'm honored to be working with you and very much appreciate your valuable feedback. Your keen eye has really kept me in check.
Thanks to Ira Winkler and Jack Wiles for following up with me regarding my case study requests. Also, many thanks for Joshua Wright and Chip Andrews for contributing new case study material. You guys have really contributed some valuable content to this book.
