Author Notes

Greg Harvey is a prolific author of personal computing books that are highly informative, yet entertaining and easy to understand.

Harvey earned a B.A. in classics and American history from the University of Illinois in Urbana in 1970. He moved to San Francisco the following year and worked as a draftsman on civil engineering projects for the next 10 years

Harvey became interested in the growing computer field in the early 1980s. While teaching college computer classes at Golden Gate University, he wrote his first books, WordPerfect Desktop Companion (1987) and WordPerfect Instant Reference (1988). Since then, he has written, in his own words, "tons of books." These include Lotus 1-2-3 Instant Reference (1989), Encyclopedia Lotus 1-2-3 (1991), and WordPerfect 6 for Windows Quickstart (1993).

Since 1993, Harvey has written exclusively for Dummies Press of IDG Books, for whom he has turned out several personal computing classics, such as 1-2-3 for Dummies (1993), DOS for Dummies (third edition, 1998), and Excel 2000 for Windows for Dummies (1998).
