About the Author

David A. Karp is that dangerous combination of compulsive writer and eBay fanatic.

He discovered eBay in the late 1990s while looking for a deal on an electric cat-litter box. As an avid collector of toys of all kinds, he immediately saw eBay’s potential to quench his thirst for second-hand consumer electronics, handmade brass trains, and obscure parts for discontinued products of all kinds. Soon thereafter he began selling on eBay, and now trades religiously, taking breaks occasionally to write books. He still has the litter box.

Educated in mechanical engineering at U.C. Berkeley, David consults on Internet technology, user-interface design, and software engineering. He has written ten power-user books (available in nine languages), including the bestselling Windows Annoyances series. David also writes occasionally for PC Magazine and is a contributing editor for ZTrack Magazine. Noted recognition has come from PC Computing and Windows magazines, the San Francisco Examiner, and The New York Times.
