Introduction > ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Thanks to Molly Wood, a talented editor who I've had the good fortune to work with before. Molly has also been an editor at CNET at various times. As always, Molly gave great advice as to the style of this book. She also deserves the credit for getting this project off the ground and for setting the tone.

O'Reilly's Mac editor, Chuck Toporek, helped bring the project in for a landing. He also provided invaluable technical assistance throughout the process. His dedication was boundless, typing with one finger of a stitched-up hand just hours after a painful accident.

Robert Luhn is an O'Reilly honcho who has continued to hire me throughout the years, though I've never figured out why. Robert has been an editor-in-chief extraordinaire at the helm of PC World and Computer Currents; he also led a CNET department through the dot-com bust.

Steve Bass is a long-time columnist at PC World. I've never met Steve, but I owe him thanks for coming up with the original "Annoyances" concept and structure in PC Annoyances. He also did a fantastic job. Given how much more annoying Window PCs are than Macs, one can appreciate Steve's monumental achievement. If you also use Windows, go out and buy PC Annoyances right now.

Thanks to the O'Reilly team for being such a supportive organization. Also thanks for the cool mug.

Thanks to my wife Chris, who puts up with my writing at all hours of the night.

Finally, thanks to my mom, who has the world's most complete library of my books. Though she doesn't own a computer, Mom never fails to give me great reviews for everything I write.
