Wow, some one tried tell me but I didn’t listen, well at least not closely enough… I would just like to thank my co-authors but especially Norm for being there when I needed a shoulder to lean on and giving me the opportunity to almost kill myself as I lost the plot, working too many hours consulting for too many clients, building the demos for the book and the SharePoint Conference and of course writing… Also thanks to Ken and O’Reilly for believing in me when I almost didn’t believe in myself.. The final drafts go out in two weeks and it will take a couple of months to get on your shelf.
