Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

I owe many thanks to the many people who have contributed to this project, but there's no question where I should start. Heather Banner Kane has the type of patience and understanding that make deadlines a goal rather than a threat. Thank you. Kate Binder is not only the contributing author, but she also did admirable work as the technical editor. (I cannot count the numbers of times I thought, wrote, and said “Good catch!”) Sarah Robbins, as development editor, made sure that you, the reader, received a quality product. We should all send her fan mail. A very special thanks to Susan Stilts at Aquent. Susan took care of the p's & q's, allowing me to concentrate on the ABCs.

Among the others at Que who deserve special acknowledgment are Executive Editor Beth Millett, Project Editor Karen Shields (“I'll start review any day now, Karen, I promise!”), Copy Editor Chuck Hutchinson (“Yeah, that's what I was trying to say!”), and Team Coordinator Julie Otto. Thanks, too, to Ted Alspach and the Illustrator team at Adobe, and to the wonderful professionals on the Forum during the beta cycle.

I would be remiss if I did not also mention here the love and thanks I have for our families. They showed great understanding during the hectic months of writing. I would also like to mention the support of my hockey teammates on the Mavericks. (They managed to earn yet another championship, despite playing with a guy who too often was thinking “screenshot” rather than “slap shot.”) And, lastly, thanks to Hugo the Dog for his patience when the bowl was empty and for providing me with such a large selection of images from which to choose.
