Every January we start to wonder, ‘Was Scott Kelby the No. 1 bestselling computer book author last year again?"

You see, every year that it happens, it’s amazing, and we all get to experience that ‘Wow, Peachpit has the No. 1 author!" kind of feeling all over again.

Still, I have to confess that it’s a little more nerve-wracking when you’ve been No. 1 for four years straight.

Well, nerves are all calm now, and I’m so happy to say that for the fifth consecutive year, Scott Kelby is the No. 1 computer book author in the U.S., according to Nielsen BookScan data! Congrats, Scott!


Scott Kelby wrote a total of seven books in 2008 (whew!), including The iPhone Book, Second Edition, Mac OS X Leopard Killer Tips, The Photoshop Elements 6 Book for Digital Photographers, The iPod Book: Doing Cool Stuff with the iPod and the iTunes Store, Fifth Edition, The Mac OS X Leopard Book, The Adobe Photoshop CS4 Book for Digital Photographers, and The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers. And somehow, he still has time to run a successful company, a few industry-leading magazines, Photoshop World Conference & Expo, Photoshop User TV, as well as write his own blog, where he communicates daily with his loyal fans.

Let’s go for six in 2009, Scott…bring it on, 2009!
