"Test Driven Development: A Practical Guide" just won the Jolt award inthe Technical Book category. I want to make my appreciation known for those that helped out.
At the 2004 Jolt Awards (Mar 17 at the SDWest conference) my latest book was award the Jolt for "Technical Book". I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge and thank the folks that helped make the book what it is:

Mike Clark for the section on JUnitPerf,

Jens Uwe Pipka for the section on the Daedalos extensions,

Tim Bacon for the section on xmlUnit,

Mike Bowler for the section on the Gargoyle extensions ,

Bryan Dollery for the section on IDEA,

James Newkirk for the chapter on NUnit, (James' own book on TDD with .Net is now out as well)

Bob Payne for stepping in at the last minute with the chapter on PyUnit,

Kay Pentecost for the chapter on VbUnit, and

Scott Ambler for the appendix on agile modeling (Scott always seems to have a new book out... I've lost track :).

Thanks everyone!

There are always scores of people behind the scenes of any success, and this is no exception. I'd especially like to thank my editor, Paul Petralia for his hard work, encouragement, and.. well.. patience.

Congratulations, Dave! As one of the judges, I can assure you that this was a very solid category with a lot of high-quality work, but Test-Driven Development stood out even so!
