Acknowledgements

Even though our names appear on the cover, we couldn't have written and produced a book about a subject as far-reaching as wireless networking on our own. We stand on the backs of giants, and we offer our heartfelt thanks to the many generous individuals on the Internet who selflessly share their knowledge and expertise with all comers.

In particular, we'd like to thank Rob Flickenger and Tim Pozar, whose sites and email have been guideposts for many of us in the wireless networking world. The Bay Area Wireless Users Group mailing list is also a constant source of new information and enlightenment as well (www.bawug.org).

We'd also like to thank the people who helped produce the book: Tonya Engst, whose copy editing was invaluable; Jeff Tolbert, whose cover and interior illustrations were exactly what we had in mind; Nancy Davis, whose publishing instincts remain unmatched; Lisa Brazieal, who can still spot a wayward pixel at ten paces; and Nancy Ruenzel, Peachpit's inestimable publisher.

Adam: “Writing a book is hard work, but partnering with someone of Glenn's knowledge, enthusiasm, and skill made it not only easier, but also far more enjoyable. I couldn't, and wouldn't, have done it without him. My undying appreciation also to my wife, Tonya, who copyedited the book and helped me find the time I needed to write and edit in the final few weeks.”

Glenn: “Adam is the hardest working man in computation, and a great coauthor. I enjoyed the bicoastal (him on the East Coast, me on the West Coast) experience of writing with him immensely. Thanks are due to my officemates, colleagues, and friends for their continual support, and above all, I'd like to thank my wife, Lynn, for her interest and constant encouragement.”
