About the Author
About the Authors Bob LeVitus (pronounced Love-eye-tis) was the editor-in-chief of the wildly popular MACazine until its untimely demise in 1988. From 1989 to 1997, he was a contributing editor/columnist for MacUser magazine, writing the "Help Folder," "Beating the System," "Personal Best," and "Game Room" columns at various times in his illustrious career. In his spare time, LeVitus has written 36 popular computer books, including Mac OS 9 For Dummies and Apple Works 6 For Dummies (also with Dennis Cohen). Always a popular speaker at Macintosh user groups and trade shows, LeVitus has spoken at more than 100 international seminars, presented keynote addresses in several countries, and serves on the Macworld Expo advisory board. He was also the host of "Mac Today," a half-hour television show syndicated in more than 100 markets, which aired in late 1992. Millions in the United States and abroad read his syndicated newspaper column, "Dr. Mac." LeVitus has forgotten more about the Macintosh than most people ever knew. He won the Macworld Expo Mac Jeopardy World Championship an unbelievable four times before retiring his crown. But most of all, LeVitus is known for his clear, understandable writing, his humorous style, and his ability to translate techie jargon into usable and fun advice for the rest of us. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, two children, and a small pack of dogs. Dennis R. Cohen coauthored Apple Works 6 For Dummies (with Bob LeVitus), Macworld Apple Works 6 Bible (with Steven Schwartz), and Teach Yourself WebTV (with Erica Sadun), in addition to being the technical editor of more than fifty titles, including Macworld Mac Secrets, Teach Yourself Excel 2000, Macworld FileMaker Pro 5 Bible (and 3 and 4), as well as Mac OS 9: The Missing Manual. When Bob runs his Mac trivia contests at various Macworld Expos, he disqualifies Dennis from competing. Dennis has been developing software for the Macintosh since 1984 and for other platforms (Apple III, Lisa, Unix, PCs, VAX, Modcomp, and CPM) before that. A few of the products on which he has worked are ClarisWorks (now called AppleWorks), Claris Resolve, dBASE Mac (and dBASE III for Unix), ClarisImpact, and StuffIt InstallerMaker. He resides in Sunnyvale, California, with his Boston terrier, Spenser. For diversion from computers, he plays bridge, backgammon, golf, and shoots trap.
