Now that many homes have two or more computers, home networks are spreading like wildfire. By networking your computers together, you can share files, high-speed Internet connections, and peripherals such as printers and scanners, saving your household time, effort, and money.

    Great read; informative, yet simple

    Mastering Home Networking, by Mark Henricks, is an informative and entertaining way to learn about how you can network your computers together. I must admit that I am not a big fan of technology books. But this one is a bit different. The author does not treat the reader like an idiot. But at the same time, the author does not treat the reader like a technological genius. The subject matter is treated in a way that both a beginner and a expert can enjoy. If you want to learn how to network your computers together, to enhance your business, make home life simpler, or just for entertainment, this is a great book that will take you through the necessary steps.
