Overview

Wondering what your child or grandchild does on the computer but not sure how to check? Concerned about dangers just a click away? Need a quick reference to bridge the technology gap between you and your teenage expert?

At last, a groundbreaking book offering the help you need without insulting your intelligence. The Family Computer Handbook is a fantastic reference for busy parents and adults who need a little help dealing with normal issues associated with a home computer.

Everyone knows most computer books are complex and crammed so full of technical jargon the average reader struggles to use it. Author Brian Rice wrote this unique book as a result of his own personal frustration with such books and authors who always overcomplicate the simplest concept. Pulling from his background as a teacher and computer professional, Rice has carefully selected topics related to a home user's needs and combined them into an effortless reading experience. In addition, he has laced the book with informative side notes and step-by-step screen shot instructions allowing the reader to follow along with their computer while learning. It is refreshing to finally find a book written exclusively for the average user.

If you own a computer and have children at home, it is your responsibility to take control of its safe operation. See for yourself why everyone who reads this book agrees it is an essential tool for all users and makes a great addition to any family computer.
