Writing a book is hard. Writing a book for Dummies is even harder — trying to articulate something in a way for someone with very little or no knowledge of the topic to understand is not easy. Making the book easy to read and ensuring that it is technically correct is, as I said, hard. Thankfully, I had some help along the way.
First and foremost, I would like to thank Susan Christophersen, the Project Editor, for hand holding me through the entire process. Susan, thanks for the guidance and all the work you've put into this book. The book is a huge improvement from the first cut that I sent you and most of the credit for that should go to you.
I would also like to thank Jordan Knight and Russ Mullen for diligently reading through the content and looking for technical errors, as well as providing valuable feedback.
A big thanks also to Katie Feltman and Wiley Publishing for providing me an opportunity to write this book.
