The third edition enjoyed careful technical review by Zak Greant and Chris Newman. Their efforts improved the manuscript at many points. Monty and the developers at MySQL AB also provided insight in response to my questions.
The people at Pearson responsible for this edition were Shelley Johnston, Acquisitions Editor; Damon Jordan, Development Editor; and Andy Beaster, Project Editor.
I am happy to recognize that my wife Karen again deserves special credit for her support during yet more revision and rewriting.
