We also publish computer books, concentrating on productivity titles. In the late-1980's, Abacus pioneered book/disk publishing by bundling the highly regarded book PC Intern with a ready-to-use diskette. Abacus was one of the first publishers to move to book/CD-ROM publishing. Among the best selling books are Easy Digitial Photography, PaintShop Pro Power Solutions and Building Your Own PC.
