He has polished, cleaned up, and actually read over 80 computer books on topics ranging from word processing to desktop publishing to the Internet. He edited about 50 of those books online with Microsoft Word. Peter believes that the goal of all computing is to help you get your work done faster so you don't have to sit in front of the computer anymore. His favorite pastime is pruning trees; his greatest pleasure, jawing with his children.
