John Forester is the son of the famous "Hornblower" author C. S. Forester.
Born in East Dulwich, London, England, he moved with his family to Berkeley, California, in 1940 and attended public schools and the University of California at Berkeley. He started as a physics major, but graduated with a bachelor's degree in English in 1951. Following a brief stint in the U.S. Navy in the early 1950s during the Korean War, Forester eventually settled in California to become, as he describes, "an industrial engineer, a senior research engineer, a professor, and, of all things, an expert in the science of bicycling".
