I want to send special thanks to Michelle Newcomb for putting up with me on this project. She was the driving force behind the work. When working with me, she needs all the encouragement she can get!
Lovisa Bedwell had to wade through all the problems I put into this book's first draft. Any problems that might be left are all mine. In addition, the other staff and editors on this project, namely Kevin Howard and Kris Simmons, made this book better than it otherwise could be. Once again, I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth Finney, one of my many long-time friends at Sams Publishing whom I appreciate very much.
My lovely and gracious bride stands by my side night and day. Thank you once again. You, precious Jayne, are everything that matters to me on earth. The best parents in the world, Glen and Bettye Perry, continue to encourage and support me in every way. I am who I am because of both of them.
