That’s right, For Dummies has turned 20! In November 1991, "DOS For Dummies" rolled off the press with 7,500 units and the yellow-and-black machine has not stopped since.

But 20 years and 200 million books later, For Dummies is the most widely recognized reference series in the world and continues its goal of “making everything easier.”
