About the Author
Arthur Griffith is a computer programmer and a writer. He is the author of
eleven books and the coauthor of three. His education was many years ago in a land far away, and he has a degree in Computer Science and Mathematics.
During his years as a computer programmer, he developed systems as varied
as nuclear power plant construction accounting, missile guidance, remote
control of cable-TV set-top boxes, and satellite communications control. All
the work he did with computer programming required the use of mathematics
and the ability to explain complex concepts in simple language.
He moved to Alaska in an attempt to retire, but failed. He is now developing
software for Kachemak Research Development and writing books, like this one.
He and his wife, Mary, now live high up on a ridge in remote Alaska, with
moose and bear in the yard and eagles hunting from the roof.
