About the Book

I was sick of being bored to death by computer books, so I set out to write one in my own voice, and as my own voice is one from Boston, Massachusetts, it's laced with profanity and a glaring lack of political correctness. I don't feel as if a computer book has to read like a college text, and I also don't think that learning needs to be such a serious endeavor.

My goal is to create a book where the reader feels compelled to read every page, even if only to find out what the insane author is going to say next, and regardless of whether or not you agree with my opinions. In the process though, I'm hoping you'll accidentally learn a thing or two.


Before purchasing, I recommend reading the Sample. This book really is full of profanity and crassness. If you're easily offended, do not purchase it!
