Books

Our writing philosophy is simple: When there's a task you don't know how to do but you need to get it done in a hurry, or when you're stuck in the middle of a task and can't figure out what to do next, there's nothing more frustrating than having to read page after page of technical background material. You want the information you need--nothing more, nothing less--and you want it now!

That's what our books are all about. They're written in plain English--no technical jargon and no computer-speak. No single task in any of our books takes more than two pages, and the illustrated step-by-step format is easy to understand and follow.

We have written sixteen books on Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. Some of the older books are no longer available from bookstores.
