Overview

The Little Book of Computer Wisdom does for computers what Strunk and White did for the English language: it squeezes all the essentials into a few pages. It makes computers easy, not by telling you everything you need to know about any particular software or hardware but by showing you how to develop a general computer sense that lies beyond the thousands of details. The Little Book leads you step by step from novice to guru, beginning with "Which Computer?" and ending with advice on how (and whether) to upgrade. It reveals the essential secrets of successful word processing, spreadsheeting, databasing, and networking, everything from "Edit first, format later" to "Don't put two spaces after periods." It tells how to avert disaster and what to do when disaster strikes. In short, The Little Book tells you what you need to know to make your PC or Mac behave the way you always hoped it would. It's the one book every computer user ought to have.
