Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

I'd like to thank an excellent team at Que. (You guys are always great.)

We'll start with Kevin Howard, my talented development editor, for making sure this book covers what really matters, and for coordinating an awful lot of professionals doing an awful lot of hard work.

Thanks to tech editors J. Boyd Nolan and Bill Rodgers for adding insights and catching errors (any that they've missed are, of course, mine). They added enormous value—both where I expected it and where I didn't.

Thanks, also, to copy editor Cheri Clark, who not only smoothed the rough edges to make this book far more readable, but also went beyond the call to raise technical issues and make this book significantly more accurate.

Thanks to Stephanie McComb, my very capable acquisitions editor, and the excellent contributing authors she acquired—Faithe Wempen, Patricia Cardoza, and Boyd Nolan.

And behind these behind-the-scenes talents, there are the terrific Que production folks who transform marked-up manuscripts into attractive, inviting books, with amazing speed and efficiency, including (but not limited to) project editor Tricia Liebig, proofreader Suzanne Thomas, indexer Chris Barrick, and series designer Anne Jones.

Thanks to my agent, Lisa Swayne, who got me involved with this project even before she was an agent. A personal, heartfelt thanks to the marketing, promotion, and sales teams who've made previous editions of this book a best-seller.

This time around, I'd especially like to thank the late Bill Ray for the valuable contributions he made to earlier editions of this book. He was a good man, gone far too soon. He will be deeply missed.

Finally, 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.
