Apress releases "Perls of Wisdom"

Apress has selected a representative sample of my 200+ magazine column articles and published them as Perls of Wisdom, just in time for last minute Christmas shopping!

And my picture is on the back cover. Can't be anonymous at the bookstore any more. {grin}

I had very little to do with the book, mostly because I had already written all the text over the years. I did help nudge the selection process a bit and write a sidebar for some of the columns to bring the subjects up to date or give a bit of "behind the scenes" for the writing.

"Until next time, enjoy!"

    From Amazon's Description of you:

    Randal Schwartz is one of the bestselling authors of all time, ...

    Seems like we are missing a word between "bestselling" and "authors", or perhaps I should just get another of your books, and try to make the statement more true.

    happy holidays
