About the Author:

The Guru

Francis Glassborow

"So, if you have never programmed a computer, or even if you have but the process still seems mysterious and something you do not enjoy then this is the book for you. At least I hope it is, because it was written for you".

Francis Glassborow began his career as a maths teacher and is a world-renowned C++ authority with over 30 years of programming and teaching experience. A life time member of the ACCU (Association of C and C++ Users), the organisation which he chaired for the most of the 1990s, and a member of the BSI panel for standardising C and C++, he is feared and revered in the computing publishing industry for his honesty and expertise.

The Guinea Pig

Roberta Allen

"When Francis asked me to be a C++ student I thought he was rather insane. I am scared of computers and useless at maths. However, I am sure that if I can learn to program with Francis’ help then anyone c an, so perhaps I am a good choice after all".

Roberta Allen has juggled a wide variety of part time jobs to fit in with family commitments including telephone operator, barmaid, playgroup leader and working in a butcher’s shop. She has a first class honours degree in Theology and has most recently worked as Company Director for a plastic injection moulding company.
