    This book is a real pleasure

    I discovered one or two interesting things I didn't know about the Internet from this book. The authors know their stuff, and the book is well organized and easy to read.

    Move Forward With This Helping Hand

    Read it page by page, underline the marvelous tips, take some notes for reference when the book is finished and then...go back to the computer, align your hand and mind. Now didn't you learn a bunch of things from the Gurus this time? I did! Thanks y'all. Good writing!

    Okay for beginners/intermediate

    Reading the book was fun, but too much of iteration as well as excessive info about other technical aspects beyond the basics of how to browse, search and shop.I think the authors are trying to squeeze in too much for the dummy...
