Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

As all first-time authors discover to their great surprise, writing a book is not a solo activity. And that is true no matter how many titles you've chalked up. I've got a big “team” to thank in the creation of this book: all the staff at Peachpit Press, especially Rebecca Gulick and Kate Reber, my project editor and production coordinator; and Marjorie Baer, Peachpit's executive editor. Many thanks, too, to Amy Thomas Buscaglia, Liza Weiman Hanks, and Wendy Katz for keeping my prose in check, my numbers sequential, my figures up to date, and my train of thought more or less on track (everyone needs an editor!); to Brenda Benner for copyediting; and to Phyllis Beaty and Karin Arrigoni for compositing and indexing this manuscript through the wee hours of the night(s).

Thanks also go to Conrad Chavez and Barbara Obermeier for their valuable contributions of technical expertise, product knowledge, and many great suggestions. And to Mordy Golding of Adobe for answering so many questions about new features and for letting his humor show through the entire grueling review process, even when he was asked to have it done “yesterday” about five times a week.

I'd also like to thank Ron Chan for creating the art for the cover and part openers, and Stephen Dampier for pre-empting a last-minute artistic emergency.
