Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once you've entered this brave new world, you'll need to learn its customs. "When exploring new territory, veteran explorers learn the language and customs of the natives before coming out of the bush," say Thomas Mandel and Gerard Van der Leun. Coming in March from Hyperion, their Rules of the Net: Online Operating Instructions for Human Beings helps users learn both language and customs, explaining what the Net is, how it came to be, how to recognize the various cyber-species, how to use e-mail properly and the 12 essential commandments of good Net behavior.
