    About the Author

    Yvonne Johnson has been writing computer books and teaching computer classes since 1982. She has written more than 60 computer books and college texts for well-known publishers on practically every type of software that exists–from operating systems to desktop publishing, from word processing and spreadsheets to databases, from programming to graphic design and web design. Her most recent Mac projects include doing the technical editing for Easy iLife 09 (Que) and Switching to Mac OS X Snow Leopard (Pearson Education).


    She started the first proprietary computer-training school in Kentucky and operated it for 12 years, serving local clients such as Brown & Williamson Tobacco and General Electric, and sending out trainers to locations all over the country for the Department of Defense, the IRS, and Fortune 500 companies. During that time, she wrote the curricula for all the software programs taught at the school. After selling the school, she worked as a freelance computer curriculum developer, writing a large percent of the curricula offered by a national computer-training company headquartered in Chicago. She also wrote computer-training material and trained extensively for a computer-training and consulting subsidiary of the Washington Post. Ultimately, she took the position of Vice President of Curriculum Development with this company.


    Although she has a tremendous depth and breadth of computer knowledge, she has never forgotten how to communicate with beginning learners. She is known for the simplicity of her writing and her ability to explain complex topics in understandable terms. This ability comes from years of delivering classroom training on computer applications to thousands of employees of large and small businesses, military and government personnel, teachers, attorneys, secretaries, and, yes, even Microsoft software support engineers.
