About the Author:

Kris Jamsa, Ph.D. is not only the president and CEO of Jamsa Press, he is also the author of over 65 computer books covering a wide range of topics, including DOS, Windows, OS/2, programming languages, graphics, the Internet and the Web. In 1983, he earned his bachelor's degree in computer science from the Air Force, in Las Vegas, Nevada. At the same time, Dr. Jamsa was earning his master's degree in computer science from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. In August of 1993, Dr. Jamsa received his doctorate in computer science with an emphasis on operating systems from Arizona State University. Continuing to broaden his education, he is currently working on his MBA commuting from Las Vegas every week to San Diego State University.

It was in 1985 that Dr. Jamsa got his rather unusual start in writing. For one of his computer science classes at UNLV, Dr. Jamsa was required to read a certain computer book which he found cryptic, frustrating, and hard to follow. When a friend argued that since the material being covered was difficult, then the text needed to be too, Dr. Jamsa wagered his friend five dollars that he could write a better computer text that was thorough, yet easy to comprehend. Far exceeding his original goal, Dr. Jamsa received offers from two publishers to publish his book and numerous compliments and praise for his easy to understand writing style. Dr. Jamsa is now the author of over 65 computer books covering a wide range of topics, as well as the head of the fastest growing computer book and multimedia publisher and computer solution provider!

Today, Dr. Jamsa is regarded as one of the leading experts in the industry. He is known through his books for his ability to make the most difficult concepts simple and understandable. On several occasions he has been asked to speak regarding the most current topics of the computer industry. Because of his expertise and experience, computer users worldwide turn to Dr. Jamsa for advise and solutions.
