Dan Gookin

Dan Gookin is the author of more than 120 titles. He has been writing about technology for over 20 years.

Dan combines his love of writing with his gizmo fascination to create books that are informative, entertaining, and not boring. Because his 120 titles have 12 million copies in print that have been translated into over 30 languages, Dan can attest that his method of crafting computer tomes seems to work.
