Publishing a book requires collaboration between many different people. Thanks to my wonderful editor, Rick Kughen, for conceiving the idea for this work. Thanks to the entire Pearson team, especially Lori Lyons, who worked valiantly to get this book out before Apple released another set of products (not an easy feat, I assure you).
Special thanks to Walter Galan and Kyle Wiens from iFixit for their enthusiastic partnership in this endeavor. Thanks to Charlotte Kughen of Wordsmithery LLC for her great suggestions and for making my words flow so nicely.
Thanks to Tom Chick of Intelligent Designs (idez.com) for the technical guidance on the iDevice take-aparts—you have been a great mentor to me over the years.
Thanks to all my family ...
