Steven John is a writer and journalist living just outside New York City, by way of 12 years in Los Angeles, by way of growing up in Washington, D.C. Also, there was that stint in Boston. He can occasionally be found climbing mountains, is often spotted in a kayak or canoe, and is usually found at home with his wife, son, and daughter. His books hang out at www.stevenjohnbooks.com and, aside from The Manual, he regularly contributes to 'Business Insider,' 'New York Magazine,' and several other sites. And one time he brewed this batch of Toasted Maple Porter that was just the tops.
