More About the Author

Hi. I've been writing about Macs, other computers, and software since dinosaurs ruled the earth. OK, it's actually been since 1987. I began writing for the late MacGuide magazine, and started writing for Macworld shortly thereafter. I was a Contributing Editor at Macworld from 1990 through 2004, and I still write for them. Over the years, I've also written for most of the other Mac magazines.

I wrote my first solo book in 1994, and wrote my first commercially successful book in 1997, JavaScript for the Web, Visual QuickStart Guide, written with my then girlfriend and now wife, Dori Smith. That book has been in print ever since, though we've revised it many times to match the growth of JavaScript and other Web technologies. As you can see on this page, I've written or co-written many more books, notably on Dreamweaver, Apple's iCloud and Keynote, and the Microsoft Office programs.

In late 1999, we moved from the Los Angeles area to the Sonoma wine country. It's a better place to live in general and was a fine place to raise our son. Now that he's grown, it's just us and our very excellent cat, Pixel, who always makes an appearance in each book.

Format: Paperback
When I purchased my Mac mini several months ago, I was surprised to see a copy of Intuit's Quicken 2005 personal finance software fully installed. I had been shopping around for such a program, but didn't want shell a lot of money for one. So I decided that even it didn't have all the features I wanted or needed, I'd make it work because I didn't have to spend extra money for it.

Opening and starting program wasn't that difficult and I could have accessed online guides and help, but I don't like reading manuals online, and most them of I find tedious to read anyway. No doubt I could have learned how to use Quicken without a manual, but I like to learn as much as I can about program so that I can get the most out of it.

So I turned to Tom Negrino's Managing Your Personal Finances with Quicken, an affordably priced book that would get me up and running with Quicken in no time. Like other Visual QuickProject guides, Negrino's book is well laid out with large, color coded chapter headings and concise instructions.

There's no need to read this book from cover to cover. Its design and structure are for accessing what you need to know as you work through the program. The book is written for both Mac and Window's users, the latter getting a little more instruction--perhaps because those users need it.

Beyond setting up my accounts, what I found most useful are instructions on many time saving features of the program like setting scheduled transactions and downloads, setting up categories for income and spending, and creating reports for tax purposes. Wish I could say I used the section on setting up investment portfolios, but unfortunately it's not a book on how make that kind of money-only how to record what you make, which in my case is nothing.
