<p><b>Andy Rathbone</b> probably didn’t think “someday I’m going to be the world’s all-time best-selling tech how-to book author” when he was finishing his comparative literature degree. A stint writing for computer magazines led to him writing <i>Windows For Dummies</i>, published in October 1992. Since then the book has seen 18 editions published and sold millions of copies. When not helping people find the Start button, Andy enjoys bird watching and playing ukulele.</p>
