About the Authors

Ed Bott is a best-selling author and award-winning computer journalist with more than 15 years of experience in the personal computer industry and on the Web. For the past decade he was responsible for PC Computing magazine's extensive coverage of every conceivable flavor of Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office. If you lined up every book Ed has written (all published by Que), they'd take up more than six feet of shelf space. Ed is a three-time winner of the Computer Press Award, and he and Woody Leonhard won the prestigious Jesse H. Neal Award, sometimes referred to as "the Pulitzer Prize of the business press," in back-to-back years for their work on PC Computing's "Windows SuperGuide." He lives in an extremely civilized corner of the Arizona desert with his wife, Judy, and two amazingly smart and affectionate cats, Katy and Bianca.

Woody Leonhard describes himself as a "Certified Office Victim." With 17 (or is it 18?) computer books under his belt, he's seen parts of Office that would curl your hair. Woody's best known as the publisher of Woody's Office Watch, the feisty, weekly, no-holds-barred (and absolutely free) electronic newsletter that specializes in holding Microsoft's feet to the fire. More than half a million people subscribe to WOW and Woody's other newsletters on Windows, Palm-like handheld computers, and more (http://www.woodyswatch.com). He and his cohorts are also responsible for "Woody's Office POWER Pack," the number-one add-on to Microsoft Office. Woody has won eight Computer Press Awards and, with Ed, two American Business Press Association awards. He and his son recently gave up the Colorado mountain scene, and now bask in the glorious sun on Phuket Island, Thailand.
