Gradually, Microsoft's MSN has evolved into a remarkably broad, remarkably useful family of web services. It's got dozens of nooks and crannies you might not discover on your own -- but with MSN: The Everyday Web, they're all in plain sight.
This simple book is ideal for beginners and comes with a copy of the free MSN Explorer software that Microsoft provides to help users personalize and manage MSN's web services. Like MSN itself, it's task focused. A "Know What's Going On" chapter covers everything from MSNBC news to entertainment gossip to homework help. A "Play and Have Fun" chapter covers everything from TV listings to Microsoft's premium online games. (Bet you didn't know MSN hosts photos of your town from space: Bill Gates is watching!) A "Get a Personal Life" chapter covers love and marriage, online matchmaking, planning your wedding, and raising your kids.
You'll find chapters on MSN's resources for health and fitness, car and home buying, careers, hobbies, and communications -- everything from greeting cards and Hotmail to instant messaging and getting your own free home page. Almost all of MSN's services are free, and this is a remarkably inexpensive guide to making the most of them.
