Pro MySQL forward by Brian Aker

Have known about this for a few weeks but thought it better to wait. Back at the MySQL conference I chatted briefly with Brian Aker (MySQL AB Director of Architect) about one of the chapters in Pro MySQL. He suggested I have Apress send along a copy of the book for him to look over and possibly review.

The folks at Apress thought it a good idea to see if Brian would be willing to write a forward for the book. I wasn't privy to all of the back and forth, but it in the end Apress fed most of the chapters to Brian who read and agreed to write a forward for the book. Of course we were pretty nervous in anticipation of Brian's comments, was an exciting day for Jay and me reading Brian's comments, who was quite complimentary.

Thanks Brian, your nice words in the forward mean a lot.
