My sincerest thanks go to:
Dr. Gary Kessler, the technical editor for this book. Gary is everything you could want from a technical editor … not only does he find all my technical errors, but he also brings great ideas to the table. Thank you Gary, your constant encouragement and friendship made the process fun.
Chris Katsaropoulos, Ben Rearick, Steve Elliot, and the whole team at Elsevier for your enthusiasm for this topic, and all the guidance, patience and support along the way.
To Janet, for helping to make every chapter better, more consistent and always finding just the right quote to kick off each chapter.
And to the whole team at WetStone … Carlton, Tiffany, Geoff, Amanda, Heather, Brian and Sean for making it possible ...
