Brian Underdahl is the well-known, best selling author of over 70 computer books on a broad range of subjects. He has appeared on a number of TV shows, including the Computer Chronicles, and several TechTV programs, and is the subject of an hour-long interview on the syndicated Computer Outlook radio program. One of his titles was recently recommended to viewers by Scott Gurvey, Bureau Chief, on the Nightly Business Report on PBS, and his books have won awards including an Award of Merit from the Northern California Technical Communications Competition and the Referenceware Excellence Award for best title in the Graphic Design and Multimedia category. Brian has been involved in personal computers from their beginning and has a background in electrical engineering.

Brian figures that it's the author who should do the work so that readers can get their money's worth. That's why his books are different - he takes the time to explain what's going on so that readers can understand the subjects easily.show more
