Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

This was my eleventh book, and I've worked with some great people along the way, but I've never worked with folks thisdedicated, top to bottom, to producing an outstanding book. They knew their stuff. They made me sweat. They represented you, the reader, tirelessly, to make sure this book was as accurate, clear, and helpful as we could make it.

Thanks, first, to Jim Minatel, now Associate Publisher—a very well-earned promotion. To Steve Schafer, a brilliantly talented, knowledgeable, and sensitive development editor. To some terrific technical editors: Daryl Lucas, Jessie Louise McClennan, and before them, Doug Klippert. Thanks for great tracking, scheduling, and co-author recruitment from Jenny Watson—and top-notch co-authoring from Michael A. Larson, Bill Ray, Sharon Podlin, and Woody Leonhard. Thanks also to Ash Patel for his "business communication" insight. Kudos to the copy editor, Margo Catts; the project editor, Linda Seifert; the proofreader, Jeanne Clark; and the indexer, Becky Hornyak; and to a talented production team who transformed our Word files into a book that's a pleasure to look at.

Is this starting to sound like the Oscars®? Sorry, I'm almost done. Thanks to my agent, Lisa Swayne, who got me involved with this project even before she wasan agent. A personal, heartfelt thanks to the marketing, promotion, and sales teams that did such an outstanding job with Que's Special Edition Using Word 97. Thisbook's bigger and better—I can't wait to see what they do next!

Most important, thanks to you for choosing this book. I sincerely hope you'll find it to be a trusted companion as you work with Word for years to come.
