Posted December 7, 2000
I would recommend this book to anyone who is new to the internet, or anyone who is comfortable browsing the web, and would like to improve or streamline their internet use. The book is written in a very straight forward, logical manner. Terms, concepts and examples are explained clearly and accompanied by screen shots. The tone of the book is very down to earth with lots of good advice and comments on problems a web user might encounter and how to deal with them. There is enough information presented to get new users started or to help experienced users tweak their performance. I have been using the internet for several years at work to do research, and at home to shop, play games, and exchange genealogy information. I thought I was a very efficient internet user, especially compared to some of my coworkers and family, but this book has shown me how to access other options on the internet that I did not know existed or thought were too complicated.Was this review helpful?
