To Bruce, without whom I would never had started or finished.
In the development of any book, there are more people involved than could ever be listed on an Acknowledgement page. This book is no exception. That being said, there are people and organizations without whom this book never would have been possible:
Bruce Jacobs, who read every page - more than once
Echo Swinford, who made sure I got it right
Anne Pierson, who got me started
Tracy Syrstad, who made it as clean as possible
Bill Jelen, who saw the possibilities
Austin Myers, who filled in the multimedia hole
The PowerPoint MVPs, they all know why
April Dalke, for all her support
Kate Eskesen, for being there
Microsoft and TechSmith, whose products made it happen
The PowerPoint newsgroup community, whose sharing helps us all
In addition, many people encouraged me as the book progressed. They know who they are. Their support kept me going. Without them, this book couldn't have happened .
