About Sandy Berger

Sandy Berger is seen and heard everywhere these days: in her Compu-KISS newsletter, on her radio program, in her newspaper column, in her three books, and on the Internet and by fans from around the globe. And although she is the host of the Computers and Technology section of the AARP web site, a far broader age group seeks her opinions. It's the universal appeal that put Sandy in Parade Magazine and on the Today Show. Dubbed "the Martha Stewart of e-learning," Sandy is knowledgeable, likable, and has a way with people. The New York Times placed her in the top five most influential people in e-learning.
