Yazoo author J. Wiltz Cutrer Jr., has cracked the code.
In the often confusing world of computers, where most of the language is a remote dialect of “advanced nerd,” Wiltz is your translator.
He transforms confusing jargon into simple-to-follow instructions, allowing the reader to make peace with their technology.
With more than two decades of experience in Information Technology, Wiltz knows the challenge of man versus machine, and now, he has harnessed that experience and poured the lessons learned into his new, informative, and entertaining book.
In Don’t Throw IT ~ Get To Know IT, Wiltz explores common questions everyday people experience with their computers. He tackles such burning questions as how to properly setup your wireless network at home and how to handle malicious software, such as viruses, without sacrificing your sanity. Other tasks covered include protecting your Internet connection to keep your browsing safe and keeping your computer clean and running in top shape.
All of these are accomplished using tools freely available to the home user. Yes…free…a welcome price today.
Unlike other technology books, Don’t Throw IT ~ Get To Know IT is an easy read for the “real” computer user. Through analogies and light humor, the reader gets to actually understand the information, instead of spending time trying to understand terminology that doesn’t make sense in the real world. This is information you can use today, presented in such a way for you to truly understand.
Initial reviews reveal statements like “in MY language”, “easy read”, and “non-techy language”.
This book truly lives up to its tag line:
“…all presented in a way even my Mother-In-Law can understand!”
