Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The pleasures and travails of the Internet and online world are explored with ambitious and responsible panache in Bennett's solid guidebook for parents seeking to help their kids get the best use out of their home computer. Bennett, an expert national commentator and writer on family computing, keeps his information relevant and valuable without being overly specific, making the most of a subject that could, in the ever-evolving world of computers, confuse even the most attuned parent. Bennett gives his picks of best web sites for children and outlines his choices for best hardware and software as well, but his discussions on "Making Technology Work for Your Kids" and "Setting Realistic Expectations" for the magic machine are the clear standouts. Highly recommended as a good starting point for responsible parents who suddenly find themselves thrust into the overwhelming world of computers and all the high-tech glitz that goes with it.--Geoff Rotunno, "Valley Voice Newspaper," Goleta, CA
