About the Author

John Pospisil is the founder of CogentInsights, a marketing and communications consultancy specializing in new and converging media.

More About the Author

John Pospisil was the founding editor of the magazine, Computer CHOICE, an easy-to-ready computer magazine launched by the Australian Consumers' Association in 1995, and still one of Australia's most credible and independent IT titles.

In 1996, John's book "How to buy a computer" was published by CHOICE Books. Four editions of this book have been published (the most recent in 2000) and over 40,000 copies have been sold, making it one of CHOICE Books' most successful titles ever. In 1997 John and his business partner Tom Crawley started work on their own magazine FREE ACCESS (www.freeaccess.com.au), a free, friendly computer magazine distributed through major Australian retailers.

John's second book "How to get more from your computer" was also published in 1998. In November 2001 John teamed up with Melbourne photographer Shelton Muller to launch Total Image (www.total-image.com.au), a free photography magazine distributed through camera stores. Total Image is now Australia's highest circulating photography magazine.

John's third book "How to start a small business in the real world" was published in 2002. The book was very well received, and he was interviewed on radio, as well as by the Australian Financial Review. John completed his MBA at the University of Technology, Sydney at the end of 2004.

At the moment I am in the process of finishing up my most exciting book project to date -- Hacking MySpace for Wiley Publishing.

In this book, the author talks to me, the most fledgling of geeks, in terms I can understand so that I can grasp the concepts I didn't understand. He gives instructions I can follow. I get the results I want. I'm devouring this book and learning at an incredible pace. It is extremely well organized, things are where you expect to find them. This is a generous author. The supporting website at [...] is just as user-friendly and as giving as this book. I recommend this most highly.

I wish I had found this book sooner. I'd spent at least a week surfing the Internet to find more information on how to really tailor MySpace, and this book would have saved me a lot of time. It's appropriate for people who are new to html and CSS, as well as experienced coders who just want to know how MySpace pages are set up and what's unique about the way they did things. Having previously spent my time just working with inserting CSS and html into MySpace profile boxes, I'm now going to move on to the next big step of using a DIV overlay and make my MySpace really mine. The book is a quick read, full of useful information, has a lot of screen shots to back up the text, and goes beyond coding issues to useful information for improving your photo techniques and editing. John covers all the bases!

This may be a good book for younger people who are EXTREMELY computer savvy. As a fairly computer savvy "senior citizen", I thought this item would be easy for me to follow. Sorry, I finally gave the book to a teen-ager who loved it! This manual is more technical than the average person can follow.

I think this book is excellent for people looking to learn about all the possibilities of editing their MySpace layout, especially the "div layouts." The only issue with the book is that it's beginning to get a little old, but the book still works excellent as a resource and a guide!

Pros: A thorough run down of all of the things that one can do to bend My Space to the will of the more tasteful.

Cons: The grammar needs to be edited a little closer.
