About the Author

Mac Bride has many years' experience of teaching computing to adults. This invaluable teaching background has made him a much sought-after author of computing books in the UK and internationally. Thirty years ago, he was asked to develop onscreen tutorials, with voice-overs, for a computerised teaching system. This led him to computer programming and now, 12 operating systems, 10 languages, several hundred programs and about 150 books later, he is still enjoying himself just as much as ever.
