Getting startED Windows 7Joseph Moran and Kevin Otnes are both writers who have a long history in technical documentation and other tech-related endeavours. In this interview, we get to know Kevin and Joseph and then I’ll share a little about their book “Getting StartED Windows 7” (Amazon)

Interview with Joseph Moran & Kevin Otnes

Windows 7 for DummiesUpdate: I’m giving away my copy of this book, completely free to one lucky comment author. See below for more details.

The winner of the book is announced.

Andy Rathbone started geeking around with computers in 1985 when he bought a 26-pound portable CP/M Kaypro 2X. Like other nerds of the day, he soon began playing with null-modem adapters, dialing computer bulletin boards, and working part-time at Radio Shack.

He wrote articles for various techie publications before moving to computer books in 1992. He’s written the Windows for Dummies series, Upgrading and Fixing PCs for Dummies, TiVo for Dummies, PCs: The Missing Manual, and many other computer books.

Today, he has more than 15 million copies of his books in print, and they’ve been translated into more than 30 languages. You can reach Andy at his Web site, www.andyrathbone.com.

In this article, I interview Andy and find out about his new book Windows 7 for Dummies and share my thoughts on it after reading it myself.
