More About the Author

David Byrnes is one of those grizzled old-timers you'll find mentioned every so often in AutoCAD 2009 For Dummies. He began his drafting career on the boards in 1979 and discovered computer-assisted doodling (you always wondered what CAD stood for, didn't you?) shortly thereafter. He first learned AutoCAD with version 1.4, around the time when personal computers switched from steam to diesel power. Dave is based in Vancouver, British Columbia, and has been an AutoCAD consultant and trainer since 1988, since which he has been a contributing author to ten books on AutoCAD. He teaches AutoCAD and other computer graphics applications at Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design and British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver. Dave has been with the AutoCAD For Dummies series for longer than he cares to remember. He was technical editor for four AutoCAD For Dummies and two AutoCAD LT For Dummies titles and then coauthor of two more AutoCAD For Dummies editions. AutoCAD 2009 For Dummies is his second outing as a solo act.

AutoCAD For Mac users should be aware that AutoCAD 2012 For Dummies is written for the Windows version of AutoCAD. There are too many differences in both user interface and capabilities to cover both versions in the space I had available - not to mention the fact that, at time of writing, I'd be covering 2012 for Windows and 2011 for Mac. So, if you're a Mac user, I recommend George Omura's Mastering AutoCAD For Mac.

I'd rather not have had to rate my own book, but I had to give it something so I averaged its value from the viewpoint of a Mac user (1 star) and that of a Windows user (5 stars, of course!!).

What a awesome book. Just purchased the book and is very easy to follow for the beginner such as I. You gave me the tools to be up and running in very little time. Can't wait to get into the intermediate parts. keep up the great work. It was with your honest review that I made the decision to purchase your fine book.
Happy AutoCAD User

Great book! I read this book almost everyday when I have a question on CAD or need to figure something out. Use to run CAD 2005 and when I made the transition into 2012, the book really helped.

I find all Dummies books extremely helpful.
AutoCad for Dummies is, in particular, the one
book of this collection, that i find very
easy to follow, it almost feels that someone
takes you by the hand and guides you. I am grateful
to Autocad for Dummies as I am now able to keep
up at class.

Unlike a lot of Dummies books, this one does not suffer from too much cheery, chatty nonsense that can drive someone who really wants to learn something crazy. AutoCad is a complex program but this books walks one through it and you can learn how to use the program competently with this book.

I bought this book for work purposes, and it has helped me learn the basics of AutoCad LT. The one down side is that you cannot easily thumb through it for the information you need, because there is background you need to know- and that is probably as a result of the program. Easy to follow and entertaining.

I got this for my wife who is learning AutoCad. It is not a step by step learning tool, but should be a good reference book.
