Christina once said that the writing really happens in the editing. Austin wasn’t sure, but he quickly learned how true it was. This book would not have happened or be even half as good if it weren’t for Alyssa’s fearless, patient, frenzied, kind, and amazing editing skills. She whipped everything into shape, herded us cats, and buffed everything to a nice shine.

Similarly, the rest of the crew worked miracles. The designers got it, Becky had the patience of a saint, and Marta’s copy-editing eye caught every Lilliputian detail. Michael made the whole thing happen.

Erin Malone’s beautiful photographs set the scene for each chapter. And Michael Fleming’s charming illustrations bring a smile to our faces every time they appear.

We recruited a whole passel of practitioners to handle the technical editing. In addition to making sure we weren’t crazy, they poked holes, made suggestions, and offered ideas that helped both of us. Fortunately for the reader, the tech editors are some of the smartest people in the business: Sarah Rice, Larry Cornett, Robert Hoekman jr, Frank Ramirez, Livia Labate, Cindy McWilliams, Joshua Porter, Bryce Glass, Chris Baum, and Jorge Arango.

We’re both indebted to the wonderfully wise communities of smart people who talked, argued, and shared with us.

Thanks for the persona pics: Rahel Bailie, Erin Malone, Joshua Porter, Scott Hirsch, Bryce Glass, Allison Walker, Angie Serna, Alyssa Wodtke, Michael Fleming, Jeff Sensabaugh, and MJ Broadbent.
