Karl Petersen (iMovie troubleshooting section) lives with his wife, Joan, and a collie on Bainbridge Island, WA, a 30-minute ferry ride from Seattle. (It’s the ferry Michael Douglas runs onto in Disclosure.) A break between jobs (including a stint in the Peace Corps and a career in insurance) gave Karl the chance to explore the first Macs, and he never looked back. He also writes software.
Joseph Schorr (co-author, iPhoto chapters), a former Macworld contributing editor, began collaborating with David Pogue in 1982—on musical comedies at Yale. Years later, they co-authored six editions of Macworld Mac Secrets. Now that Joe is a product manager at Apple, he’s not technically supposed to work on books like this. Still, many chapters of this book are based on his original prose.
Phil Simpson (design and layout) works out of his office in Stamford, Connecticut, where he has had his graphic design business since 1982. He is experienced in many facets of graphic design, including corporate identity, publication design, and corporate and medical communications. Email: email@example.com.
