Preface > Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Thanks first to all of my colleagues at O’Reilly, who have provided the most enriching and exciting workplace anyone could ask for. Thanks especially to Rael Dornfest, Simon St. Laurent, and Robert Luhn, for giving me the amazing opportunity to write this book. Thanks also to Brett Johnson, a capable and cordial editor, for steering me through my first book, and to Steve Saunders for a thorough technical review and more than a few helpful comments and suggestions. Thanks to Rachel Wheeler, for a copyediting job very well done, and to Mary Anne Weeks Mayo. Thanks also to Claire Cloutier, for giving me the freedom and encouragement to experiment with many of the things that later became hacks in this book.

I’d also like to thank all of the contributors—Andrew Bruno, Sean M. Burke, Ian Burrell, Greg Chapman, Paul Edstein, Guy Hart-Davis, Evan Lenz, Jack M. Lyon, Gus Perez, Shyam Pillai, Phil Rabichow, Christopher Rath, Omar Shahine, Mark Hammond, and Dan Mueller—for their clever and creative solutions, and especially for their willingness to share their work with the rest of the Word world, in true hacker’s spirit. Thanks also to the denizens of the WOPR Lounge (http://www.wopr.com), an extraordinary community of folks who truly enjoy helping others understand Word. I’d especially like to thank Jefferson Scher, for helping pin down a particularly perplexing line of code, and Gary Frieder, for invaluable feedback and helpful suggestions.
