Special Thanks To
Big thanks to our editor Nancy Davis; her expert touch, warm compassion, and fierce dedication always make our work better.
Thanks to Tracey Croom for her excellent production work.
Our heartfelt thanks to Danielle Foster, the book's compositor, who laid out the book under incredible time pressure and pulled off the job with grace and aplomb.
We're grateful to Peachpit's Nancy Ruenzel for her support.
Thanks to our son Sean, for understanding when his parents got cranky, and for making himself dinner on too many occasions.
We'd like to express our special thanks to all of the high school, college, and university instructors who chose to use the previous editions of this book as a textbook for their classes.
Dori would like to thank the wonderful ladies in the W&S group for their loving kindness and virtual hugs. And thanks are also due to the Wise-Women's Web Design community (http://www.wise-women.org) for their patience, support, and inspiration as role models.
Music is the fuel for Tom's writing, and this book is no exception. The soundtrack and musical inspiration for this sixth edition was graciously provided by lots of uncool bouncy pop music that will remain unidentified, Wolfgang Mozart, Patty Griffin, Richard Shindell, KT Tunstall, Bruce Springsteen, Rosanne Cash, REM, Antonio Vivaldi, Pandora Radio, and the shuffle feature in iTunes.
