Paul McFedries has been wrestling with computers (metaphorically speaking) for over 30 years. He has a degree in mathematics, can swap out a computer circuit board in seconds flat, and once even used the phrase "paradigm shift" in a sentence. Despite all of this, McFedries still, inexplicably, has a life. Paul is the author of more than 75 computer books that have sold over four million copies throughout the solar system. Among his recent titles are The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Using Your Computer-For Seniors and The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Google Chrome and Chrome OS.
