I blog, I write books and I love the experience of writing. Therefore, I write almost every day and I am lucky that I can afford to do this without the need for a daily 9 to 5 job. I write when I feel that I have something to say. Luckily, this happens quite often. I write when I want to help others. I am lucky that many of the things I know and learn are useful to others. My blog posts alone are read by hundreds each day. 10 years ago I had no idea I would be writing blogs posts, let alone books. Yet, here I am today, trying to start a conversation with you, through what I write. I hope you will enjoy my books and that you will come back for more. I love it when people write back, so if you have anything that you would like to share with me, don't hesitate to get in touch.

"Windows 8 Step by Step will hold your hand and walk with you every step, as you learn how to use the new OS and unravel its features, secrets and beauty. It will make learning and using Windows 8 a pleasure! If you are planning to upgrade to Windows 8, this is one book I’d strongly recommend you consider buying."
--Anand Khanse, The Windows Club

"Don’t be intimidated by this book’s size. You’re not buying a container for fluff and filler, believe me. Everything in this new version of Windows is explained in careful detail and with illustrations to show everything along the way. This is the kind of book to keep handy by your computer for reference, because it will give you confidence that you can do everything right. It’s a winner!"
--Marte Brengle, 7 Tutorials

"A must have manual to add to your computer library."
--Connie Harris, TCM Reviews

"Step by Step is a very useful resource, and very highly recommended."
--James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review: Wisconsin Bookwatch, March 2011, Volume 6, Number 3

"Step By Step: Network Your Computers & Devices should form the backbone of any household’s reference library. The information is easy to find and easy to understand, and the screenshots on each page are a definite plus. Taking complex concepts one step at a time is the best way to insure success, and this book lives up to its promise."
--Marte Brengle, Windows 7 Tutorials

"This Microsoft book written by Ciprian Adrian Rusen takes one through the necessary steps to set up a network commencing with actually setting up the broadband router. This included the wireless settings. Where the author thinks it necessary, there are explanatory notes, tips, security notes and recommendations. As a result one is able to gain a useful understanding of what one should, and should not, do -- and why."
--Adrian Morant, GadgetSpeak

"One of the things which separates it from other similar books, is that it extensively covers network interoperability between Windows 7 and all other major operating systems: Windows XP Service Pack 3, Windows Vista Service Pack 2, Mac OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard) and Ubuntu Linux v10.10 (Maverick Meerkat). If you've got a network with diverse computers and operating systems, this book can truly help you make them all work well together."
--Vishal Gupta,

"What differentiates this book for most of the other such books that I have read, is the language of explanation and the accompanied screenshots. Ciprian has written everything in very easy to understand, sans tech jargon, language. Even people who don’t consider themselves tech savvy and find it difficult to even think about setting up the home network themselves, can go through the instructions in this book and get started."
--Abhijeet Mukherjee, Guiding Tech

"It’s a great book, with loads of information, and compared to most tech books isn’t very expensive—only $19.79 for the paperback and $9.99 for the Kindle version. Well worth it, and hey, it’s an official Microsoft Press book—written by a How-To Geek guest author."
--Lowell Heddings,

"Many books like this are great when everything is working as it should so it’s good to see some useful pointers when it doesn’t. There are some really good troubleshooting flowcharts to help work through any problems."
--Andy Parkes, Andy's Techie Blog

"...I must say that it is clearly written and has many relevant screen shots that will help you in setting up your new Win7 box and getting it going on a network."
--Ward Souders, GRApple, Volume 12, Issue 1, February 2011
