I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

One of the documents I received earlier in the month is the full list of people who participated in the reviewing of the manuscript. At Manning, people can sign up to be technical reviewers, and this effort completely voluntary. If you remember, this is how I started down the path of writing this book!

The reviewers for this book will go into the acknowledgements section of the book, but let me acknowledge these 19 reviewers in this space. Their comments, by way of a questionnaire and open feedback, were typically anonymized, so this was my first time to see their names.

Art Bergquist
Boris Vasile
Changgeng Li
Ernesto Cardenas Cangahuala
Harinath Mallepally
Kathleen Estrada
Keith Webster
Luciano Favaro
Michel Graciano
Miguel Biraud
Mohsen Mostafa Jokar
Nacho OrmeƱo
Nitin Gode
Patrick Dennis
Ralph Leibmann
Richard Butler
Scott King
Stuart Ellis
Travis Nelson

I looked at each questionnaire and comment during the three review periods while writing the book. I tried to take something constructive from every piece of feedback. Many times this resulted in updates to the manuscript, and for that I appreciate it. Thank you, you reviewers!

There won't be a BLOG next week, as I will be away. Thanks for reading, and I'll see everyone next time!
