Brian Salter's Books:
Prentice Hall

 

Prentice Hall is a subsidiary of Pearson - publishers of the Financial Times. Over three years I wrote 11 computer books for them.

Kicking off was a business version rewrite of a book by Rob Young:

The UK Business Internet Starter Kit - Publ: 1 Sep 1999 - ISBN-10: 0130208868

and then a series of Simple Guides:

Paint Shop Pro 6 - Publ: 11 Jan 2000 - ISBN-10: 013026413X

Quicken 2000 UK - Publ: 12 Jan 2000 - ISBN-10: 0130264148

Flash 4 - Publ: 27 Mar 2000 - ISBN-10: 0130273783

 

Of course, Flash 5 and then Flash MX followed in quick succession with new books having to be prepared to keep up with the rush from the software house:

A Simple Guide to Flash 5 for Windows
Publ: 11 May 2001 - ISBN-10: 0130610313

A Simple Guide to Flash MX
Publ: 17 Sep 2002 - ISBN-10: 0130458252

Meanwhile the publishers wanted a UK version of a best selling American book on eCommerce:


The Complete Idiot's Guide to e-Commerce: UK Edition - Publ: 17 Aug 2000 - ISBN-10: 0130904023

eCommerce was very much flavour of the month, so two more titles were commissioned:

eCommerce without Tears - Publ: 1 Dec 2000 - ISBN-10: 0130897329

A Simple Guide to E-commerce - Publ: 27 Mar 2001- ISBN-10: 0130286494

Finally two more Simple Guides were commissioned:

A Simple Guide to Html - Publ: 30 April 2002 - ISBN-10: 0130088439

and A Simple Guide to Visual Basic - Publ: 30 April 2002 - ISBN-10: 0130088420 which was also translated into Polish
