With apologies to my favorite band, that's exactly the feeling I had last night when I arrived home from ETech in San Diego to find a box from Wiley and Sons waiting for me in the front hall. In it were copies of my book, The Unofficial Guide to Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. For 10 months, beginning in March of 2006, this book has been a major (and daily) part of my life. Writing it during one of the most tumultuous beta cycles I've ever experienced (4 major UI revisions), a change in full-time jobs, my son beginning high school, my daughter finishing college, along with the errata of life in 21st century, was an unforgettable experience.
Writing a book was one of those things that's sat on my Someday/Maybe list for a long, long time (it's a GTD thing). Now my Unofficial Guide is now officially a reality. Pretty darn cool.
