Once again, the good folks at Wiley Publishing have made things easy on a demanding technology author! It's time to send my appreciation to those who helped make this book a reality.
As with all my books, I'd like to first thank my wife, Anne; and my children, Erin, Chelsea, and Rose; for their support and love — and for letting me follow my dream!
No project gets underway without the Composition Services team. Starting with my words and adding a tremendous amount of work, Composition Services has once again taken care of art, layout, and countless other steps that I can't fathom. Thanks to each of the team members for a beautiful book.
Next, my appreciation goes to editorial manager Kevin Kirschner as well as to my technical editor Dennis Cohen, who checked the technical accuracy of every word — including that baker's dozen of absurd acronyms that crops up in every technology book I've ever written. Their work ensures that my work is the best it can be!
Finally, I come to my hardworking project editor, Pat O'Brien, and my top‐of‐the‐line acquisitions editor Bob Woerner: My heartfelt thanks to both of them, for without their support at every step, this book wouldn't have been possible. With their help, yet another For Dummies title was guided safely into port!
