30 Awesome Book Dedications That Might Be Better Than The Actual Book

4. Pedram Amini, ‘Fuzzing: Brute Force Vulnerability Discovery’

I dedicate this book to George W. Bush, my Commander-in-Chief, whose impressive career advancement despite remedial language skills inspired me to believe that I was capable of authoring a book.

5. John Steinbeck, ‘East of Eden’

Dear Pat,
You came upon me carving some kind of little figure out of wood and you said, “Why don’t you make something for me?”
I asked you what you wanted, and you said, “A box.”
“What for?”
“To put things in.”
“What kind of things?”
“Whatever you have,” you said.
Well, here’s your box. Nearly everything I have is in it, and it is not full. Pain and excitement are in it, and feeling good or bad and evil thoughts and good thoughts- the pleasure of design and some despair and the indescribable joy of creation.
And on top of these are all the gratitude and love I have for you.
And still the box is not full.

6. George R.R. Martin, ‘A Storm of Swords’

for Phyllis, who made me put the dragons in.
