First, I want to thank Martin Tracy for inspiring choices that eventually led me to this book. Thank you, Martin. Next, I want to thank David Sterling for putting this book project together. He has valiantly led the development of this content. He is such a valuable asset to any project. I also want to thank my co-authors, editor, technical reviewers, the people at Microsoft Press, Microsoft Corporation, and any other person or organization that has contributed to the creation of this book. Most importantly, I want to acknowledge the customer. Without the customers, without our partners, this book would be a meaningless undertaking. It is the customers and their desire to succeed that fuels works like this. Thank you.
