Writing a book is a fun and typically fast-paced process that involves the talents of manyindividuals, and some projects involve more team members than others .
First Look Microsoft Office 2010
was a particularly exciting and challenging project because it involved workingwith Office 2010 in its various stages of development
which is like writing about a movingtarget
and coordinating ongoing feedback from the people on the front lines: Office 2010product managers, reviewers, and content providers .Thanks very much to everyone who has helped out along the way . Specifically a big Thanksto Lynn Finnel, a great project manager and friend; Rosemary Caperton, an excellent projecteditor with a green heart; Juliana Aldous, who provided help with hurdles and roadblocks;Joanna Yuan and her crew (Stephanie Krieger and Beth Melton) who gave feedback and pro-gram assistance; and Steve Sagman of Waypoint Press and editor Roger LeBlanc for the greatcopy editing and fine layout of the book you are now viewing . And thanks, always, to myagent, Claudette Moore, for doing everything she does so naturally and well in making theseprojects possible .
