Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Engst here provides the cure for the Internet disenfranchised. Packed into nearly 1000 pages is an exhaustive overview of the Internet and its history, tools, and resources. A great deal of the book is devoted to differing connections to the Internet and their advantages and disadvantages, plus important Internet software. Internet aficionados might argue with Engst on some of the details, but this book and its comprehensive collections of facts, rather than factoids, provides a real service to Internet novices. Even if you don't systematically read the text, you'll find the collection of Internet tools on disk invaluable. This is one of the best places to start Internetting.
