Richard Mansfield has written 25 computer books, 4 of which became bestsellers: Machine Language for Beginners, The Second Book of Machine Language, The Visual Guide to Visual Basic, and The Visual Basic Power Toolkit (with Evangelos Petroutsos). His most recent title is Hacker Attack. He has written columns and articles in computer magazines, but since 1991 he has focused full-time on writing books. Overall, his books have sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into 11 languages. But that's not the whole story. He's extraordinarily sedentary, preferring to sit and read, write, or program his computers instead of moving around. He realizes that all this goes against the popular health craze, but so far -- so good. Debbie Revette has been involved with software development for more than 20 years as a consultant, programmer, and manager.

Prior to that, she was Director of Product Development Management at a division of Dun & Bradstreet that produced a suite of OLAP tools marketed worldwide by Nielsen Marketing Research and IMS. She has designed and developed software for Hewlett-Packard, MDG.org, Kraft Foods, Nielsen Media Research, ADP, Tymshare, and the US Department of Commerce's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory.
