Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

A number of people have contributed to this book, both in discussing some of the issues that are covered in these pages and in reviewing these pages for correctness and coherence. In particular, I would like to thank Miriam Blatt, Steve Clamage, Mat Colgrove, Duncan Coutts, Harry Foxwell, Karsten Guthridge, David Lindt, Jim Mauro, Xavier Palathingal, Rob Penland, Steve Schalkhauser, Sukhdeep Sidhu, Peter Strazdins, Ruud van der Pas, and Rick Weisner for proofreading the drafts of chapters, reviewing sections of the text, and providing helpful feedback. I would like to particularly call out Richard Friedman who provided me with both extensive and detailed feedback.

I’d like to thank the team at Addison-Wesley, including Greg Doench, Michelle Housley, Anna Popick, and Michael Thurston, and freelance copy editor Kim Wimpsett for providing guidance, proofreading, suggestions, edits, and support.

I’d also like to express my gratitude for the help and encouragement I’ve received from family and friends in making this book happen. It’s impossible to find the time to write without the support and understanding of a whole network of people, and it’s wonderful to have folks interested in hearing how the writing is going. I’m particularly grateful for the enthusiasm and support of my parents, Tony and Maggie, and my wife’s parents, Geoff and Lucy.

Finally, and most importantly, I want thank my wife, Jenny; our sons, Aaron and Timothy; and our daughter, Emma. I couldn’t wish for a more supportive and enthusiastic family. You inspire my desire to understand how things work and to pass on that knowledge.
