More About the Author

I began my writing career in the form of love letters to a young woman I was smitten with. I was probably 14 years old. In high school, being fairly opinionated I edited the school newspaper and wrote the editorials. I wrote about everything from world politics to the lunch service and I deliberately copied William F. Buckley in style and his overuse of esoteric words.

Finding myself married with a baby and no job, I met a man on the tennis court who became my literary agent. 90 days later I was the author of "The Quick and Easy Guide to Lotus 123" and got a check for 5K in royalties 6 months later. I had found my life's calling, or so I thought. It was never again that easy.

I subsequently wrote the first ACT! book, the first Dummies book on Crystal Reports and have kept writing tracts that explain the complex subject of software to the hoi pollio.

My most recent book is Marketing Me Book: The Complete Plan to keeping your job in any economy.

My interest in politics has never waned and my next book will be on the American empire.

If you, or many people in your organization, use ACT! day-to-day, for general contact management (but you're not trying to "split the atom" with it), than this book is a great, general purpose go-to book for quick, simple, straight-forward answers.

Easy to use, well-written, nice screen caps. There is, however, very little information in here about more advanced items (such as using the ACT! developer API/SDK).

I had been using Act 2000 for a long time, and this year I purchased Act 2005. If you are an Act 2000 fan, it is for you. But the many new options, interface (and bugs) of Act 2005 made this book outdated.

Notice the copyright date before you get buy it. It is pretty much useless for anything except very basic item for Act 2009

I didn't learn too much from this book as I have been using Act! 2004 for a couple years now and have already stumbled across most of the features I need to know. It would be good book for a novice to buy. It is written well and has a user-friendly format.
