Normally, this is a place where you acknowledge people who helped you along the way. Don't worry, I will get to that, but I want to bring up something that I can't help but acknowledge.
While I was writing this book, I took a road trip in early January of 2012. I wanted my family to visit my wife's mother and sister in Pocatello, Idaho. After a week in Pocatello, I drove solo to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). When the big technological expo was over, I returned to Pocatello and picked up my family to drive back to Pullman.
On January 15, 2012, my family and I were in a terrible automobile accident.
