About the Author Peter Weverka is the author of seven computer books, including Dummies 101: Word 97 For Windows and Dummies 101: Microsoft Office 97 For Windows, both by IDG Books Worldwide, Inc., and Quicken 6 for Busy People by Osborne/McGraw-Hill. His humorous articles and stories (none related to computers, thankfully) have appeared in Harper's and the Exquisite Corpse. Peter is also an editor. He has polished, cleaned up, and actually read over 80 computer books on topics ranging from word processing to desktop publishing to the Internet. He edited about 50 of those books online with Microsoft Word. Peter believes that the goal of all computing is to help you get your work done faster so you don't have to sit in front of the computer anymore. His favorite pastime is pruning trees; his greatest pleasure, jawing with his children.
