I want to thank Jimi Eric Bove for providing technical expertise and performing valuable testing on his iPod touch, and John Paul Bove for iTunes, Windows, and iPhone expertise. I also want to thank Rich Tennant for his wonderful cartoons, and Dennis Cohen for technical expertise beyond the call of duty. And let me not forget my Wiley editors Paul Levesque and John Edwards for ongoing assistance that made my job so much easier. A book this timely places a considerable burden on a publisher's production team, and I thank the production crew at Wiley for diligence beyond the call of reason.
I owe thanks and a happy hour or three to Carole McLendon at Waterside, my agent. And finally, I have Executive Editor Bob Woerner at Wiley to thank for coming up with the idea for this book and helping me to become a professional dummy — that is, a Dummies author.
