Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Many thanks to my wife, Connie, who kept the family together while I devoted countless hours to this long, long project. When things got tough she revived me, and when I feared possession she restored my sanity. She’s truly my friend, my helpmate, and my life’s love.

Thanks as well to my children, Lorrill, Justin, and Lynessa, for their support and for bearing all the antics and absences involved in writing such a book. Thanks as well to my parents, my brothers, and their families: Harold, Marcella, Ruth, Dave, Connie, Michael, Steven, Rick, Jenny, Matt, and Claire. We should visit more often.

At Microsoft Press, thanks to Alex Blanton, who set up the business details, to Sandra Haynes, the series editor, and to Kristen Weatherby and Laura Sackerman, the project editors, for their ceaseless confidence, encouragement, and assistance.

Thanks to the entire team at Studioserv Book Publishing Resources, especially Steve Sagman, whose experience and professionalism shined brightly at every moment. Thanks as well to Jennifer Harris, the copy editor, and to Jack Beaudry and Chris Russo, the technical editors, all of whom contributed heavily to the overall quality of the book. Working with such a gifted group of people was a true delight.

Most of all, thanks to you, the readers, who make an effort such as this both possible and worthwhile. I hope the book meets your expectations and that we meet again.
