Always Use Protection: A Teen's Guide to Safe Computing

Dan Appleman's career is typical of someone who, unable to choose what he wants to do for a living, decides to do everything. From founding a software company (Desaware), to cofounding a publishing company (Apress), to programming, to writing books (this is his seventh), he's a Brm believer that the question 'What do you want to be when you grow up?" can't and shouldn't be answered until you're at least 80 (so he has a way to go).
Meanwhile, he's also a consultant, public speaker, and columnist, and volunteers as a youth group advisor (which is how he knows the kinds of security issues teens actually face today).
