If you're new to Second Life, you must have this down-to-earth book by your side. It's chocked with humor and tons of helpful information about this platform.
For those of us who primarily want to use SL as a learning platform for online teaching, this book makes this an exciting adventure. It's also beneficial for those just wanting to "play" and explore interesting sites.

This information can be found within Second Life Wiki for free. I've been in Second Life for five years. For the cost of this book you just go in world buy, what you need to start yourself off. You get more enjoyment if you just jump in and ask people along the way. You don't need to be a pro or study. I didn't have anyone teach me. It's silly to pay for information that is on Wiki for free. Save your money.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
