Ben Conry authored the first edition and much of the second edition of this book, but he needed some "backup". That's where I came in. Inside the front matter, you'll see me listed as "Contributing Author".
I'm no stranger to the CompTIA A+ exams and have previously authored PC Technician Street Smarts, Updated for the 2009 Exam and CompTIA A+ Certification Practice Exams (Exams 220-701 & 220-702). This is my first outing writing for Cisco Press and I hope it's not my last.
31 Days Before Your CompTIA A+ Exams (2nd Edition) will be available in October. Pre-order your copy now.

I love reading. I really enjoy it. I also like to write about what I read, but I read all kinds of books. The theological tomes I'm reserving for another blog entirely so if that's not your cup of tea, you don't have to be concerned that such content will appear here. On the other hand, I'm having a lot of fun reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged. I have been trying to get together with a few other folks for a "book club" of sorts, but the priorities of the various members seem a bit scattered, so it's not as successful as I'd hoped. Even if the "club" doesn't continue, I now have the desire to expand my reading selections into other more "literary areas.
I've changed the theme and imagery of the blog significantly but I still don't know if I really like it. I'll probably keep tinkering with it, but expect new content to appear here pretty soon. I'll still review books on technical subjects I like, but I also want to talk about (even if it's just to myself) my other "biblio" interests.
Please stand-by. There is nothing wrong with your television set.
