Creating a book is a team effort. And yes, I say “creating” rather than “writing.” Microsoft OneNote Step by Step, as with all other books from Microsoft Press, required a team of professionals to shape raw materials provided by the author into a finished product that readers can rely on. First, thanks to Carol Dillingham for inviting me to be part of this team, and to Rosemary Caperton who brought me back for Microsoft Excel 2016 Step by Step. The team at OTSI included Kathy Krause, project editor and copy editor; Jeanne Craver, graphic artist; Susie Carr and Joan Lambert, desktop publishers and indexers; and Jaime Odell, proofreader.

I’ve left our technical reviewer, Ed Price, for last. Ed brought years of experience with OneNote to the project and, through his notes on my original text and his own contributions, helped transform this book into a resource that will benefit readers for years to come. I value his perspective and insights. His contributions, as with those of the other team members, might be invisible within the finished work, but they are there and I am grateful.

    I am sooo excited with the various things 10 does….and sooo much I don't know if it does this or that…  I will spend this weekend in this book.  Has anyone set a [lookup solutions for problems] that would be really helpful.  I have been in the business fulltime when I started my first DATA PROCESSING company in 1962.

    I am amazed at how clean win10 is.   Of course some of your problems are really mine.  I bought an Customized HP desktop my gift to me for Christmas…with 32 GB memory and a SSD main drive…boy does it fly.  Thanks for what you have done.
