Creating a book is a time-consuming (sometimes all-consuming) process, but working within an established relationship makes everything go much more smoothly. In that light, I'd like to thank Sandra Haynes, the Microsoft Press Series Editor, for inviting me back for another tilt at the windmill. I've been lucky to work with Microsoft Press for the past six years, and always enjoy working with Valerie Woolley, Project Editor at Microsoft Press. She kept us all on track and moving forward while maintaining her sense of humor.
I'd also like to thank Steve Sagman of Waypoint Press. I worked with Steve on a previous project, and was ecstatic when Sandra mentioned that I'd get to work with him and his crew again. Steve did a great job with the technical edit, Nancy Sixsmith kept me on the straight and narrow with a thorough copy edit, Audrey Marr brought everything together as the book's compositor, and Shawn Peck completed the project with a careful proofread. I hope I get the chance to work with all of them again.
