About the Author

Jack Mingo is the author of fifteen books including How the Cadillac Got Its Fins, The Whole Pop Catalog, and The Couch Potato Handbook. He has written for countless publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Boston Phoenix, Reader's Digest, The Wall Street Journal, and the Los Angeles Times. Together with Erin Barrett, they are the cofounders of the popular Ask Jeeves series and authors of the series' first book, Just Curious, Jeeves.

Erin Barrett is the author of a kids' trivia book from Klutz Press; she has written for magazines and newspapers, such as Icon and the San Jose Mercury News, and has contributed to several anthologies, including the Uncle John's Bathroom Reader series. She and Jack Mingo have also designed numerous electronic and online games. They live in Alameda, California, with their family.

Lucy Autrey Wilson began her career with Lucasfilm in 1974, typing the script to the first Star Wars movie on an IBM Selectric typewriter. Over the years, she developed her accounting skills in areas as diverse as construction, gas and oil exploration, special effects, film, and licensing. In the late 1980s, she established a completely new Star Wars publishing program and worked on more than 1,500 titles, including sixty-three New York Times bestsellers, before moving on to new challenges in nonfiction publishing. With a BA in English Literature and an MBA in Finance, she has recently been able to combine her love of words and numbers doing the editorial and research required to translate George Lucas's intellectual curiosity into books. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
