his blood, having produced 98 books and more than 600 articles to date. The

management to heads-down programming. Some of John’s current books
include one on Python for beginners and another about MATLAB. His home
security book discusses all sorts of hardware issues, including the installation of
various sensors. John’s technical editing skills have helped more than 63 authors

baking cookies, and knitting. When not occupied with anything else, John makes
glycerin soap and candles, which come in handy for gift baskets.
