Born on July 30, 1971, in New York to parents Peter and Caroline, Piven grew up and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with an English degree. After college he started working as an editor for Computer Technology Review in Los Angeles and several years later became the senior editor. With David Borgenicht, Piven has written The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, which has been reprinted over eight times. With this popular book, three more titles have been added to make a series of four books about what to do when traveling, dating, or playing golf. Mixing humor with practical advice, Piven and Borgenicht have created books that resonate with a wide variety of readers. Piven has appeared on radio and TV shows, given interviews for newspapers and magazines, and still finds time to write. He lives with his family in Philadelphia.
