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.
