Preface > Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Although I've authored and co-authored some 48 or so books on computers, this is my first with O'Reilly, and I can say it has truly been a pleasure, in the development stage, through writing, and final polishing. There are certainly many people behind the scenes at O'Reilly that made this experience so pleasant, but I can only name those with whom I worked directly. To the rest I offer heartfelt but regrettably anonymous thanks.

First and foremost, special thanks go to Simon Hayes and Troy Mott, who helped bring the project from concept to reality. Both fellows did a super job of shepherding the project along. I'd also like to thank Tim O'Reilly for his support of the concept and the book, and my agent, David Fugate, for taking on with such relish those aspects that used to keep me away from writing (now, it's the golf that keeps me away from writing). I'd also like to thank Walter Glenn and David Karp for their on-point review and excellent comments on the material.

Finally, many authors acknowledge their spouse or children for the time the project development took away from family time. My wife, Julie, has always been a great support and help, and the kids did miss a few evenings with Dad. But hey, I have six kids . . . I needed the quiet time!
