About the Author

David A. Crowder has authored or coauthored more than 20 books on subjects ranging from computers to historical mysteries, including popular bestsellers such as Building a Web Site For Dummies and CliffsNotes Getting on the Internet. He was selling hypertext systems back in the days when you had to explain to people what the word meant. He’s been involved in the online community since its inception and is the recipient of several awards for his work, including NetGuide Magazine’s Gold Site Award.

He is the son of a teacher and a college president, and his dedication to spreading knowledge, especially about the computer revolution, goes beyond his writing. He also founded three Internet mailing lists (discussion groups), JavaScript Talk, Java Talk, and Delphi Talk, all of which were sold to Ziff-Davis. One of his most treasured memories is the message he received from an old-timer on one of those lists who said that he had never seen such a free and open exchange of information since the days when computers were built by hobbyists in home workshops.
When he isn’t writing, he spends his time with his wife Angela, wandering through villages in the Andes or frolicking in the Caribbean surf.
