Scott Clark has been the director of Peter Norton's computer books for over twelve years. He has written for many of them and has edited almost every book in the series. He was the primary author for the best-selling sixth edition of Peter Norton's Inside the PC, and made major contributions to the seventh and eighth editions. He has among his other titles, Peter Norton's Complete Guide to Norton SystemWorks, and The Effective Executive's Guide to Microsoft Access 2002. Scott has been a visiting professor of website design and Internet technologies at Fullerton College. He lives in Southern California in a house full of Stickley furniture and Disney memorabilia.From Library Journal:
Norton's covers a lot of ground in very small print, intending to reach novice through advanced users. Beginners would be better served, however, by additional images or by a simpler title such as Larry Magid's The Little PC Book (Computer Media, LJ 4/1/02). On the other hand, intermediate users may appreciate the extensive glossary and classic "Peter's Principles," notes, and tips scattered throughout, as well as the convenience of having topics from networking to motherboards to data storage explained in one place. PC hardware titles become dated quickly; purchase to replace older editions.
