Meet the Author

Stephen L. Nelson, CPA, MBA (finance), MS (taxation), has a simple purpose in life: He wants to help you (and people like you) manage your business finances by using computers. Oh, sure, this personal mandate won’t win him a Nobel Prize or anything, but it’s his own little contribution to the world.

Steve’s experiences mesh nicely with his special purpose. He’s a CPA in Redmond, Washington. He’s an adjunct professor of taxation (S corporations and limited liability companies) at Golden Gate University graduate tax school. And, heck, he even used to work as a senior consultant and CPA with Arthur Andersen & Co. (er, yeah, that Arthur Andersen — but, hey, it was 20 years ago). Steve, whose books have sold more than 4 million copies in English and have been translated into 11 other languages, is also the bestselling author of Quicken 2008 For Dummies (Wiley).

    My life has been saved by a Dummies book. My husband started his own Trucking Bussiness. He drives and I do every thing else. I don't even know how to install a program without it kicking my butt. Last year I had to pay someone to fix my mess.

    I was in Barnes & Noble one day. I walked down the computer row. I never go into this row. I hate coumputers and they hate me back. I saw quite a few Dummies book for QuickBook. I had to place an order for QuickBooks 2008. It came within a week. I have been doing a much better job with the help a the Dummies Book. I'm getting reports done that I couldn't even find last year. Before each chart or invoice I need to fill out. I just read the section and I'm on my way. I havn't had to scream, cry, pull my hair or tell myself how stupit I am. I'm happy. My husband is happy. Guess what? I am making progress all because of a Dummies Book. I havn't finished yet(I hope this year I don't have to pay someone to fix my mess). I don't think I'll have any problems though. I have my Dummies Book right by my side and all the answers are inside.
