About the Author

Michael N. Marcus is a journalist, bestselling author, editor, publisher and award-winning advertising copywriter.

His writing career started when he published a newspaper in elementary school, and since then he has been an editor at Rolling Stone and has written for many other magazines and newspapers. Michael has provided the words for over one hundred websites and blogs. He specializes in making technology understandable, and often humorous

Born in 1946, Michael's a proud member of the first cohort of the Baby Boom, along with Dolly Parton, Candy Bergen, Donny Trump, Billy Clinton and Georgie Bush.

At the urging of a misguided guidance counselor, he went to Lehigh University to become an electrical engineer, and was quickly disappointed to learn that engineering was mostly math—and slide rules were not as much fun as soldering irons.

Michael was one of a few literate people in his engineer-filled fresh-man dormitory and made money editing term papers. While in college he co-owned a band management company. One of its groups turned down the chance to record "Yummy Yummy Yummy, I've Got Love in My Tummy," which later became a hit for Ohio Express.

Later, his college apartment had an elaborate and illegal multi-line phone system, a phone booth with a toilet in it and an invisible phone activated by two hand claps.

Michael lives in Connecticut with his wife, Marilyn, Hunter, their golden retriever and a lot of stuff—including both indoor and outdoor telephone booths, a "Lily Tomlin" switchboard, lots of books, CDs and DVDs, and many black boxes with flashing lights. Marilyn is very tolerant.
