Product Description

About the Author

Hi, my name is George Root. I graduated with an MSEE degree from Caltech back in the dark ages before there were personal computers. I began my career in the aerospace industry starting with the big mainframe computers from Univac, IBM, and DEC. During the course of my career I have written thousands of pages of technical documentation. But writing this book on Google Chrome has been my most enjoyable writing project. In 1985 I saw a demonstration of a new type of computer called a “Macintosh”. It immediately struck me that this was the way computers were supposed to work. I bought a Mac and ever since then I have been a fan of, some might say fanatic about, Apple computers. Then one day, not long ago, a friend asked me what I knew about Chrome computers. I knew that there was a web browser from Google called Chrome, but I didn’t know there was also a Chrome Operating System and that computers were being built to run that OS. I started reading about Chrome and was once again struck by the thought “this is the way computers are supposed to work”. I bought a Samsung Chromebook and began trying to figure out how to use it. I found that many things about Chrome are different from the way my Mac and other personal computers work. I read hundreds of Google support pages and tried many hands-on experiments This book summarizes what I have learned along the way.

Without the book I wouldn't know all of what the Chromebook is capable. The section on transferring files held on your PC to the Chromebook is invaluable. Some of the facilities I am yet to experiment with but my experience with the book so far gives me to believe it will be presented in a logical and straight forward manner.

This is a very informative book for anyone starting out on 'Cloud Computing' particularly with a Google Chrome book computer.
It is written in a clear and concise way and has got me off to a good start to what is proving to be a better alternative to Microsoft Windows.
Thank you George Root.
