This is the Second Volume in the "Cloud Computing with Google Chrome" series.

Volume 1 of this series explained how to setup and use a new Google Chromebook Computer and many of the Google Services that are available free from Google. If you are new to the Chrome OS and need helpful information on how to setup a new Google Account and other Google Services such as Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Drive, then Volume 1 of this series is the book you should start with.

About the Author

Hi, my name is George Root.

I graduated with an MSEE degree from Caltech back in the dark ages before there were personal computers. I spent my career in the aerospace industry starting with the big mainframe computers from Univac, IBM, and DEC. During the course of my career I have written thousands of pages of technical documentation. But writing this book has been my most enjoyable writing project.

One day in 1985 I saw a demonstration of a new type of computer called a "Macintosh". It immediately struck me that this was the way computers were supposed to work. I bought a Mac and ever since then I have been a fan of, some might say fanatic about, Apple computers.

Then one day, not long ago, a friend asked me what I knew about Chrome computers. I knew that there was a web browser from Google called Chrome, but I didn't know there was also a Chrome Operating System and that computers were being built to run that OS. I started reading about Chrome and was once again struck by the thought "this is the way computers are supposed to work".

I bought a Samsung Chromebook and began trying to figure out how to use it. I found that many things about Chrome are different from the way my Mac and other personal computers work. I read hundreds of Google support pages and tried many hands-on experiments This book summarizes what I have learned along the way.
