The Author in Norway

John Webber is a business person and teacher. His background in business is reflected in his teaching and writing.

        In the business world, John's primary interest has been in real estate development. He has served on the board of directors for the Salt Lake Board of Realtors, as chairman of the Education Committee for the Utah Association of Realtors, as Regional Governor for the National Association of Independent Fee Appraisers, and as a partner in a tax-consulting business.

        Like many other teachers, John regards teaching as something fun and rewarding. He taught at the Salt Lake Community College for over 20 years. While teaching, he authored several texts:

  • Math for Business and Life
  • Contemporary Business Mathematics
  • Investment Analysis
  • Get Rich Slow (with rental real estate)
  •         In the classroom, John believes that students learn more if they are shown the big picture before being presented with the details. Then, students retain more if the stuff is kept simple, pertains to real-life, and if the students are involved in the classroom. A little fun along the way doesn't hurt, either.
            John lives in Salt Lake City, Utah. He enjoys activities in the nearby mountains, like hiking, white-water rafting, camping, and fishing. He is a respectable tennis player, but a frustrated golfer. According to his weight, he should be 4 inches taller. John is married (to his sweet wife Debbie) and has five children (Wendy, Robin, Toni, Tara and Casey).

    Feel free to contact John by calling 800-6-WEBBER, or by e-mailing him at jwebber@olympuspub.com. He would love to hear from you.
