Meet the Author

Bill Dyszel writes frequently for leading magazines, including PC Magazine, Success Magazine, Chief Executive Magazine, and Computer Shopper, while also working as a consultant to many of New York's leading firms in the securities, advertising, and publishing industries. His list of current and former clients includes Salomon Brothers, First Boston, Goldman Sachs, Ogilvy & Mather, KMPG Peat Marwick, and many others. An award-winning public speaker, he enjoys entertaining audiences with talks about the pleasures and pitfalls of using modern technology. He is also the author of PalmPilot For Dummies.
The world of high technology has led Mr. Dyszel to grapple with such subjects as Multimedia (or how to make your $2,000 computer do the work of a $20 radio), Personal Information Managers (how to make your $3,000 laptop computer do the work of a $3.00 date book), and graphics programs (how to make your $5,000 package of computers and peripheral devices do the work of a 50-cent box of crayons). All joking aside, he has found that after you figure out the process, most of this stuff can be useful, helpful, and yes, even cool.
Like many public figures with skeletons in their closets, this author has a secret past. Before entering the computer industry, Mr. Dyszel sang with the New York City Opera and worked regularly on the New York stage as a singer, actor, and writer in numerous plays, musicals, and operas. His opera spoof -- 99% ARTFREE! -- won critical praise from The New York Times, New York Daily News, and the Associated Press when he performed the show Off-Broadway.
