More About the Author

Travis Morgan is an established Computer Specialist who has gained his knowledge through both professional and personal means. Travis' detailed personality and drive to learn new and innovative technologies is his "niche".In his 20 years of IT education and experience stemming from his own love for computers, he has been a successful entrepreneur and previously an Institutional Director of Information Technology and Vice President for a national college. His vast experience and education in Information Technology has afforded him the knowledge and experience to not only recognize personal behaviors and traits of subordinates and co-workers, but also the technical aspects of how abuses occur and the detection and tracking of those behaviors on personal, corporate and public computer systems.

Additionally, Travis has been exposed to technical and non-technical computer users in corporate, small business and residential environments. Various experiences and witnessing first hand the abusive nature of some people and the Internet, has led him to write this compelling book to help parents, teachers and anyone else who feels the need to understand how to track inappropriate behavior of users of the Internet.
With our society relying more and more on technology, Travis recognizes the dire need to educate and promote understanding of the growing dilemma of protecting our children online, observing and reviewing internet behaviors and protecting their households. Travis is concerned with the technology that exposes our most sacred lives, our children, which is why he has become an advocate of this purpose.

With all the horror stories we hear in our everyday lives regarding events attributed to internet use, it is Travis' attempt to aid those closest to a potential problem to have the tools necessary to avert any harm that could possibly be in progress or have previously occurred, through use of the internet.

Travis, who is now a deaf/blind man, lives in Temecula, CA, with his wife and two youngest children.

P.S. Look for more books to come in the 'Catch Me If You Know How' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful for anyone using the internet 26 Jan 2012
By Damaskcat HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a useful book for anyone who is dubious about exactly what their spouse or children are doing on the internet. It covers e-mail, various internet browsers as well as features like auto-fill and auto-complete, checking history and looking at files. The book does not advocate invading an individual's privacy and stresses at regular intervals throughout the book that you should check on your own country's privacy laws before you start looking at what someone else has done on a computer - even if that computer is in your own home.

I found the screen shots helpful and even though I consider myself reasonably computer literate I did learn several useful tips from this book - especially about keeping myself safe while online and not leaving unnecessary details about my own activities. I found the tips for using search engines very useful as I know I don't always carry out searches in the most efficient way.

I should think this would be a very useful book for parents wanting to keep tables on their children without being over bearing about it. The book does emphasise that the best thing to do is to discuss things with the individual concerned rather than go behind their back.

Even though I have a free copy of this little book I would say it is worth paying for it as it is written in simple language which people unfamiliar with computers will find easy to understand. It also contains a glossary of computer terms which I am sure I shall use again. There is a useful web site associated with this book where the reader can find out more information on the topics covered in the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Review of Catch Me If You Know How 16 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this believing it to be about investigation of cyber crime. Sadly I was wrong. It is a collection of obvious means for parents or others to spy on children or other family members. Not impressed.

By Cheryl M-M TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Well, the author is right, even I understood what he was describing and how to do it and coming from me the ultimate computer destruction expert that is a compliment. The screenshots, which will probably be visually better on the Kindle pc App or more modern Kindles than my Kindle Keyboard, really helped in the step by step guides.Not surprisingly some of the chapters were a complete surprise to me, especially the web browsing, cache files and file sharing. Phrases like stealth mode kind of puts you in a Mission Impossible frame of mind and I found myself contemplating where to test my newly aquired IT skills or should I say on whom.I can easily see another edition being written about these subjects, perhaps even in specific areas, such as children and online safety. To be clear the writer does that in this book also, but not exclusively. I think any parent will welcome a tool that keeps their child safe online. When it comes to their safety as far as I am concerned there is no privacy, I would rather be accused of being a police state/big brother and controlling, than wake up one day and have to say to myself that I wish I had been more vigilant when it comes to the World Wide Web.

5.0 out of 5 stars An invaluable resource for learning computer forensics 10 Jan 2012
By J. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a career professional in information technology, Travis Morgan has the credentials and the experience to write a book on computer forensics. "Catch Me If You Know How" is a "must" read for anyone who has the need to check on how a computer is being used (or misused), whether it's a child who may be into pornography or an online relationship with a sexual predator; a cheating spouse; or an employee who's goofing off on the job and spending way too much time on their computer for personal affairs.

This is a book that needed to be written. I've had a personal computer since 1981, and although I'm not a certified computer geek, I know my way around computers fairly well. Even so, I learned a lot of tricks from the book. The book covers a broad range of internet activities, including web browsing, email, social media, chat and instant messaging, and file sharing (peer to peer networks). Each chapter gives very specific ways to examine a computer and determine what a user has been doing. There are screenshots from different browsers (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome) that illustrate the techniques outlined in the book. Unfortunately, my e-ink Kindle is not the best platform for the screenshot graphics that were included. (They were more legible when I loaded the book into my Kindle for PC software.)

Since privacy issues are involved, the book includes a brief but informative overview of privacy rights, including the need to sometimes check with an attorney, and when a call to the police may be in order.

The author refers to his website (catchmeifyouknowhow[dot]com). I took a look, and the website was still in development at the time I wrote this review, but it looks like it will be a valuable resource, with a blog, tutorials, and videos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A Computer User's Guide That Addresses Privacy 9 Jan 2012
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Travis Morgan deserves a humanitarian award for his exceptionally useful, easily accessible, plain talk adjunct that should be beside every computer keyboard (or tucked in the carrying case of portables) of everyone who uses the computer as a communication device: these days that is likely everyone! Though one of the features that is gaining the most attention from readers is Morgan's extensive instruction on how to prevent children who use the computer from falling victim to those who abuse the format for the means of satisfying unsavory needs (and indeed Morgan teaches us all how to avoid that sort of criminal abuse), the aspect of the book goes far beyond that.

For the bulk of readers the items covered in this book are those that simply are buried in manuals and even the Computer for Dummies books - those simply things such as how to manage files, share files, search the internet, the benefits and incipient dangers of browsing the internet, the ins and outs - positive and negative - of email usage, chat (both by word and by video) rooms/spaces, a superb overview of 'social media' and how to maintain privacy, how to TRULY clean your computer of unwanted files/browsing history/cookies/clicking on 'Like' on sites that lead to places you'd rather not visit, etc.

What makes this book so invaluable to all computer users (from beginners through moderately experienced users up to IT techs) is Travis Morgan's warmly helpful and yet sternly didactic technique of sharing all of this important information. He provides images of screens for both PC and MAC users to simplify his instructions, references guides for further information on the more complex challenges he presents, and he thankfully adds to his book rest station illustrations that keep the business at hand entertaining and make the type font large enough so that the open book beside the computer is easy to reference visually.

His last chapter alone is worth the purchase of this book - a succinct yet thorough chapter titled 'Monitoring and Controlling Internet Access. It opens our eyes and stimulates the question 'Who Knew?' and ties all the information in previous chapters together nicely. At book's end is a very helpful Glossary that provides quick references to commonly used computer-talk (and saves some embarrassment when talking to advisors more proficient in computerese!). This is one of the more valuable books available - for learning the intricacies of using a computer to helping clean up the world from abuse by those who take advantage of this current miracle of communication for their won warped needs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saving lives in a high-tech world 26 Dec 2011
By Ed Friedlander - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a physician who works with law enforcement, I have seen the terrible effects of sexual abuse and bullying. Now these evils have come to infect the world of high technology where most young people know far more than most adults. Mr. Morgan's book is the first clear guide I have see that will help parents and other protectors find the truth before it is too late. Thank you for an easy-to-read handbook that is sure to save lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travis Morgan's CATCH ME IF YOU KNOW HOW Is An Invaluable Resource 1 Feb 2012
By Cyrus Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
You can always tell when an author is presenting material that they are not just passionate about but know there is a need for as well. That is what I got from Travis's book CATCH ME IF YOU KNOW HOW. He is able to help all of live a more safe life online, and for parents he provides tips that you can use to make sure that you are keeping your children safe as well as prohibiting them from using the computer as a weapon about others.

When he says this book is written so that anyone can understand it, I would definitely agree. There are so many tips that he is able to walk the reader to and with just a little bit of time we will be on our way to being able to help others as well.

Definitely a resource that I think educators and everyday men and women alike can use, CATCH ME IF YOU KNOW HOW is invaluable.
