It definitely takes a team to create a book and I have a number of people to thank. First of all, thanks to our development editor Kevin Howard who conceived the initial concept for this book. And thanks to Stephanie McComb, the acquisitions editor on this project who assembled the team that produced this book and also provided a number of suggestions for the book's content.
Also many thanks to the book's team members: Matt Purcell (great working with you again, Matt), Charlotte Clapp, Megan Wade, Eileen Dennie, Erika Millen, Stacey Richwine-DeRome, Mark Hall (a great technical editor), and the always hardworking Sharry Gregory. I would also like to thank the folks at StarDock Corporation for supplying a copy of Object Desktop that was used in the writing of this book. Also a big thanks to Anton A. Kolomyeytsev and Artem Berman of RocketDivision.com for supplying a copy of Starskin Premium and a wealth of information.
