    Excellent 'All-Purpose' Internet Book

    The Internet has turned into a huge part of our lives, an all-encompassing technology that everyone talks about, but one that most people don't totally understand. And while this book may not turn you into an immediate 'expert about all things Internet,' it definitely will help you become familiar with it. From the book's opening chapter on getting online, surfing the web, finding information online (from news and blogs, online reviews of various items, buying items, trip planning, etc), or finding your favorite games, music and videos, talking with others online, through how to deal with spam, viruses and the like, it covers a wide variety of topics. While this book is not some 'scholarly reference,' (and I'm not sure one is really needed to learn about the 'Net), it does provide a general guide to what the reader needs to know while 'surfing' the 'Net. The book is geared toward the novice or intermediate Internet user. But even those who have been online for years and years (like myself) will learn about new topics, or perhaps gain greater understanding of them. For example, I knew nothing about RSS feeds or much about how online storage and backup sites worked before I read this book. I have all three editions of the old 'The Whole Internet' book that talked about the 'Internet of the 90s,' and I feel this book is an excellent update to that classic.
