About the Author

Bob LeVitus (pronounced Love-eye-tis) was the editor-in-chief of the wildly popular MACazine until its untimely demise in 1988. Since 1989, he has been a contributing editor/columnist for MacUser magazine, writing the "Help Folder," "Beating the System," and "Personal Best" columns at various times in his illustrious career. In his spare time, LeVitus has written 12 popular computer books, including Dr. Macintosh, Second Edition, a users guide on "How to Become a Macintosh Power User"; Stupid Mac Tricks; Dr. Macintosh’s Guide to the On-line Universe (with Andy Ihnatko), a hip guide to using a Mac and modem; and his latest book before this one, Guide to the Macintosh Underground, a unique celebration of the Macintosh’s 10th birthday.

Always a popular speaker at Macintosh user groups and trade shows, LeVitus has spoken at more than 100 international seminars, presented keynote addresses in several countries, and produced a series of seminars on How to Become a Macintosh Power User. He was also the host of Mac Today, a half-hour television show syndicated in over 100 markets, which aired in late 1992.

LeVitus has forgotten more about the Macintosh than most people know. He won the Macworld Expo MacJeopardy World Championship an unbelievable four times before retiring his crown. But most of all, LeVitus is known for his clear, understandable writing, his humorous style, and his ability to translate "techie" jargon into usable and fun advice for the rest of us.

He lives in Austin, Texas with his lovely wife Lisa, two adorable kids, Allison and Jacob, and Max and Sadie Vizsla.
