Textbooks

Yes – it’s a long, long list. I’ve been writing textbooks, primarily for Course Technology (a division of Cengage Learning) for over twenty years. In addition to the titles listed below(there’s almost 50, but who’s counting?), I’ve written thousands of pages of supplements such as instructor manuals, extra projects, testing materials, and presentations.

What has writing all these textbooks taught me? Well, apart from ensuring that I have a very in depth knowledge of many software applications, I learned two very important lessons. First, I know how to write to very strict deadlines, and second, I know how to work closely with a dedicated team to ensure that every product I produce–from a published book to a multiple-choice quiz–is error-free. Believe me, I’m extremely picky!
