I thank my wife Chelsea, family, and friends for their support through the 2-year creation of this book. In particular I thank James Hague for his helpful comments as well as all of the other industry professionals, former hackers, and independent game developers who sat for interviews and granted image permissions. Additional thanks to Bill Loguidice and Matt Barton for providing other images.
