It’s easy to think that a book written by a single author means that one person did all of the hard work, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, a book of this size, in a sense, isn’t actually written by just one person; you need a strong team to back you up every step of the way (just like Michael Weston on Burn Notice—hey, I do love yogurt after all, so that analogy holds, right?!).
Therefore, special thanks must go out to everyone at Apress who was involved in bringing this book to completion including Kevin Shea, Michelle Lowman, Douglas Pundick, Jill Balzano, Gary Schwartz, Kumar Dhaneesh, Kim Wimpsett, and Dominic Shakeshaft.
Thank you as well to my two technical reviewers, Andrew Zack and Danny Swarzman. ...
