Participants in her classes often remark about the amazing tips that Diane McKeever includes in her presentations and ask where they could read about more about them. Sadly, up until now, she could not recommend a specific book, so she decided to write one herself. Diane started by writing a blog, 100ComputerTipsIn100Days.blogspot.com, challenging herself to come up with 100 tips in 100 days. She wrote the 100 tips in 100 days and then just kept on writing. Currently the total is more than 130 with additional tips being added all the time. Diane took the top 100 tips, reorganized and expanded on them, and created this book, “100 Amazing Computer Tips”. Her classes have always been informative, entertaining, and, most importantly, not boring. Her writing style reflects her teaching approach and is clear and easy to follow. As a consultant to many Fortune 50 companies she has brought employees through the transitions from Wang word processing machines to PCs and Apple computers. Over the years she has helped people navigate the many versions of the popular computer programs. As a bonus, tips cards are included in the book. These can be copied and kept near the computer to help make you a more effective computer user. Diane and her husband Ed live in a boating community in Osprey, Florida where she is hard at work on her next title, “Amazing Windows 8.1 Tips” to help all of those who are confused by Microsoft’s latest operating system.
