Talking to Siri (Early Edition): Learning the Language of Apple's Intelligent Assistant, 2nd Edition
Product Author Bios
Erica Sadun writes a lot of books and blogs at TUAW. When not writing, she's a full-time parent of geeks who are brushing up on their world-domination skills. According to her academic dosimeter, she's acquired more education than any self-respecting person might consider wise. She enjoys deep-diving into technology.
Steve Sande also writes way too much. He's the hardware editor at TUAW and has logged more than 1.5 million words written for the blog in a little more than 4 years. He's written a number of books for Take Control Books and Apress, is married to a rocket scientist, and spends his days being bossed by a cat.
