First, I thank Eileen Chan for the encouragement and patience that enabled me to complete this book. I’d also like to give special thanks to Ashish Shetty, Tim Heuer, Mark Rideout, Jonathan Russ, Joe Duffy, Chris Brumme, Eric Rudder, Neil Rowe, Betsy Gratner, Ginny Munroe, Bill Chiles, and Valery Sarkisov. As always, I thank my parents for having the foresight to introduce me to Basic programming on our IBM PCjr when I was in elementary school.
Finally, I thank you for picking up a copy of this book! I don’t think you’ll regret it!
