I'd like to give a special thanks to Morgan Tocker, who so willingly agreed to lend his amazing wealth of MySQL knowledge to this book. Without him the book most certainly would have suffered.
I can remember the day I told my dad I was going to be working remotely for a Swedish database company called MySQL AB. To him, the idea of someone putting money in my bank account each month while I sat at home in Australia sounded like a scam. It turned out to be a big career break.
I would like to acknowledge my former colleagues at the MySQL AB (now Sun Microsystems) Support and Training teams. It was through your patience and willingness to share that I began picking up the pieces to place in this book (with a special thanks to Tobias Asplund, who provided many of the examples I used).
I would also like to thank Percona, my current employer, for continuing to enhance MySQL and adding the demanding performance features that escape Sun Microsystems' eyes. We'd all be at a loss without you.
