Editorial Reviews

Biz Manager
They don't teach you how to drive or maintain a car before they sell it to you and they don't teach you how to use or maintain a computer or network before they sell it to you. This book does the latter without throwing a bunch of geek terms at you and in plain language I learned how to take control of our support spending. It shows you how to keep from getting ripped off or scammed and how to streamline what you're currently doing, (that part alone is going to save us a load of dough).
Concerned Business
This is a great resource for every business or anyone that owns a computer. This book empowers someone that knows little about the workings of computers to ask questions and what to be looking for. We all see it every day, your computer or someone that you know is having problems and you call some random computer company to come fix it. They show up spend a couple of hours doing who knows, feeds you some gibberish, sends you a $250 bill and your computer still doesn't work.

Bought this book on Createspace before it got to Amazon via a link I got on Facebook. I can't believe how blind I've been. The techniques taught here are easy to use and setup in any business or office. I'm going to get a bonus this year because we're going to save a fortune.

Pros: 1)Can and does teach you how to save a huge amount of money on IT support. 2)You don't need to be an IT guru to understand the info. There is zero techno-babble in here and all terms are easy to understand.
