I guess you could call Gavin Hoole an author and a practical philosopher. And because I am writing this myself, I’ll write in the first-person, rather than pretend someone else is writing the page.  🙂

When I say ‘author’, I don’t mean a writer of exciting novels or less-exciting academic books. My publications are in two main areas: self-help books in practical areas of life, and self-help online content about enhancing one’s quality of life — happiness, peace of mind and such-like.

Most of what I write about is in one way or another intended to be helpful to others. I sometimes also share my view on matters of topical interest.

The most recent manual to appear on the shelves of retailers and online booksellers in South Africa, the UK and New Zealand is The Really, Really, Really Easy Step-By-Step Computer Book (Windows 7 Edition) for absolute beginners of all ages.

This book follows on from the earlier editions for Windows 98 and Windows XP, both of which had a Book 1 and a Book 2.

The other fairly recent release is The New Official K53 Manual that helps people who are preparing for the South African learner’s and driver’s licence tests.
