Creating books like this takes a real team effort. I would like to thank Stephanie McComb, our acquisitions editor, who worked very hard to assemble the team that made this book a reality and kept us all on track as the book evolved toward completion. I would also like to thank Todd Brakke, who served as the development editor for this book and who came up with many great ideas for improving its content. Also a tip of the hat and a thanks to Mark Hall, who, as the technical editor for the project, did a fantastic job making sure that everything was correct and suggested a number of additions that made the book even more technically sound. Finally, a great big thanks to our project editor, Tonya Simpson, who ran the last leg of the race and made sure the book made it to press on timewhat a great team of professionals.
