Thanks to everyone who made this book possible. Devin and Mike were an excellent team to push this rewarding project forward. Thanks also to the voices in my head who talk to me at night when the caffeine is kicking into overdrive. Twinkles, that means you. Thank you to the wonderful team at Wrox, especially Bob Elliott, who gave this book concept a chance when it was still a drunken idea on a napkin, and Kevin Kent, who made our ramblings much more concise. As always, I owe a huge debt to my wife Jenn for putting up with my late nights and my children, Colton, Liam, and Camille for being so patient with their tired dad.
I must give thanks to God; without Him in my life I would not have such blessings. To my wife Erin who has only helped in strengthening my relationship with God. She's had the patience during the late nights of writing, editing, and video recording. She will be a great mother to our future child. Thanks to my brother Brian Knight. If it weren't for him an opportunity like this would have never entered my life. He's truly an inspiration in his work and personal life and I hope I can become as good a husband and dad as he is. Lastly, I would like to thank personal eating trainer, Takeru Kobayashi. With your help my hope is to join the International Federation of Competitive Eating and break the world record for hot dog eating.
Thanks to Brian Knight for giving me the opportunity to author a book with him and teaching ...
