Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Although only one name appears on the spine of this book, it takes a large, dedicated team of people to put a book like this together. Not only did I have the good fortune of working with such a great group of people, I now get the great pleasure of thanking them and acknowledging their hard work and dedication.

First, I want to thank my amazing wife Kalebra. She's just about the coolest person on this planet, and I am—without a doubt—the luckiest guy in the world to have her for my wife. I also want to thank our 8-year-old son Jordan for being, as I've said many times before, the greatest little boy in the whole wide world.

My heartfelt thanks to everybody on my creative team at KW Media Group who every day redefine what teamwork and dedication are all about. Special thanks to my Creative Director Felix Nelson who—as always—rocked the house, and to Dave Damstra for giving the book such a tight, clean look.

A big thanks to my tech editor Polly Reincheld for her invaluable help, advice, and for keeping everything organized and rolling along. Also thanks to my buddy Dave Moser, who convinced me years ago that I should be writing Mac books, and thanks to Jean A. Kendra for her support and enthusiasm for my book projects.

Thanks to Kathy “Miss Kathy” Siler, my wonderful assistant and hopelessly dedicated Redskins fan, who will once again feel the wrath of my Tampa Bay Bucs this year, unless of course we stink again.

Many thanks to my friends at Peachpit, especially my publisher Nancy Ruenzel. They really “get it,” and their philosophy and vision make writing books an awful lot of fun, which is very rare in this industry. Also my thanks to Scott Cowlin and Rachel Tiley for tirelessly finding an audience for my books.

I want to thank all my “Mac Buddies” who've taught me so much over the years, including Bill Carroll, Jim Goodman, Dick Theriault, Don Wiggins, Dave Gales, Jim Workman, Jon Gales, Jim Nordquist, Rod Harlan, and Terry White.

Most importantly, I want to thank God, and His son Jesus Christ, for leading me to the woman of my dreams, for blessing us with such a special little boy, for allowing me to make a living doing something I truly love, for always being there when I need Him, for blessing me with a wonderful, fulfilling, and happy life, and such a warm, loving family to share it with.
