Those who feel intimidated by the Internet need fear no longer. Mr. Modem explains computers and the Web in clear, easy-to-understand terms. This book will help families stay connected through the Internet. You'll soon be cyberspacing with your grandchildren.

Computers are not nearly so mysterious when you and they are introduced by Richard Sherman. The book that takes the gobbledygook out of computers.

    A Great Way to Start Surfing

    This is a good book loaded with a lot of very helpful information about the Internet. Step by step you'll learn the ins and outs explained in a very easy to understand manner. I learned a lot and I've been surfing the Net for about 8 years.

    The Best I've Used For My Students (and for me, too)

    In additional to constantly learning myself,I teach Beginning Computers For Seniors. No fluff, clear writing and no biases without acknowledgement. I highly recommend it to my students. Sherman's approach is humorous and non-intimidating.
