I never used to like this bit of a book, as I thought it was a kind of personal indulgence to the author and their mates. However, having written this I now see that it is important to make sure that all those people who put up with your ridiculous ideas and flights of fancy get a mention so…
Thanks to Rich, Steve and Nige, who listened for a year or so and very rarely moaned when I was talking at them about all the ideas clanking about inside my head.
Thanks also to all the beta readers, including colleagues, friends and family, especially to my Mum, Lilian, who was my alpha-beta-gamma tester.
Last, but wholeheartedly not least, is Deanne, my wife and my kids, Joshua and Emilia, who support me with whatever crazy ideas I happen to be having at the time. I love you!
