Author Is a Teenage Blogger
Written by airline industry blogger Sam Sellers, "Take Control of Booking a Cheap Airline Ticket" joins more than 40 titles in the Take Control library, all written by long-standing technology experts. But Sellers doesn't fit the mold of a traditional author, since he juggles his industry research and writing deadlines with the busy schedule of a high school student at Bainbridge High School in western Washington. Sellers also runs the Airline Bulletin blog at http://www.airlinebulletin.com/.
"We were shocked when we learned that the author of the proposal was only 16 years old," said Adam Engst, publisher of Take Control Books. "He wrote a great proposal that gave no hint that he was a teenager. When we learned he had been blogging about airlines since 2004 and read his coverage, that sealed the deal."
Book Can Be Read Onscreen for Easy Surfing
"Take Control of Booking a Cheap Airline Ticket" can be read onscreen or on paper. The onscreen version is a PDF file with hot links to the Web sites mentioned, making it easy for readers to quickly access recommended sites. Although Take Control's onscreen book design has won over many who previously believed they would never read a book on a computer, a paper version is available for those who prefer to read a bound volume.
