Bunzel’s most recent business-related book for Wiley/Jossey Bass is Tools of Engagement: Presenting and Training in a World of Social Media.
He has written a number of other books; including Easy Using Office 2010, Master Visually Microsoft Office 2007 and served as the Office Reference Guide for InformIT.com. Published in 2006, Solving the PowerPoint Predicament: Using Digital Media for Effective Communication is a detailed, project-oriented approach to creating effective multimedia presentations.
More recently Bunzel’s focus has shifted to his studies at Tufts University—philosophy and English—and has covered spiritual as well as technical topics on his blogs: tbunzel.blogspot.com (mirrored at singularcity.com/community/bunzel/blog/) and more recently lifeisintelligent.wordpress.com.
The Next Chapter is my mother’s personal story of her recovery after imprisonment in a Nazi slave labor camp during World War II to retirement in La Jolla; she wrote it at the age of 74 on an electric typewriter.
She emphasized that this is not a Holocaust memoir but rather a psychological exploration of what it takes to persevere, survive and try to resume a “normal” life after severe trauma.
Presence of Mind is the personal journey of a technology writer who hit the wall and became overwhelmed with the struggle to keep up with the demands of both his profession and his inner programming.
The journey back was facilitated by insights into the deep connection between the software which is programmed by humans, and the genetic code which is the intelligent energy behind Life itself.
