Mark Myers is a former lecturer in the Communications School of Boston University. He develops interactive training and websites. He holds an A.B. from Harvard.

His professional focus is on using technology to reduce the effort and tedium of learning, primarily through interactivity. He is developing the "A Smarter Way to Learn" series on programming, a collection of instructional books paired with online interactive exercises. He runs the website http://www.ASmarterWayToLearn.com.

Mark, his wife Judy, and their three politically-active cats live in Taos, NM, where he cooks under the ghostly supervision of Marcella Hazan, reads extensively, plays showboat frisbee once a week, and longs for more episodes of "Breaking Bad."

This sad and beguiling book persuades by a thousand cuts. It's a series of news capsules that add up to something surprising, to me at least. I had always wrestled with the dilemma of the unacceptability of war versus its practical necessity. Baker ...more

“Ten minutes of reading followed by twenty minutes of challenging practice keeps you awake and spurs you on.”
Mark Myers, A Smarter Way to Learn HTML & CSS: Learn it faster. Remember it longer.

“In scripting, a careful coder ends every statement with a semicolon. (Sometimes complex, paragraph-like statements end with a curly bracket instead of a semicolon.”
Mark Myers, A Smarter Way to Learn JavaScript: The new approach that uses technology to cut your effort in half

“Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. Those who do not do it, think of it as a cousin of stamp collecting, a sister of the trophy cabinet, bastard of a sound bank account and a weak mind.”
Jeanette Winterson

“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

“As your lover describes you, so you are.”
Jeanette Winterson, Sexing the Cherry
