This is an idea book covering a broad spectrum of using personal computers at home. There are are applications for the garage, living room, kitchen, bedroom, den, bathroom, and the split level -- well, sorta, kinda.The garage chapter teaches the fundamentals of BASIC programming. The living room chapter teaches simple retrieval systems. The kitchen chapter teaches advanced retrieval systems. The bedroom chapter teaches word processing. The den chapter teaches business processing. The bathroom chapter teaches computer graphics. The split level chapter deals with various ideas, such as, a telephone monitor and making music.Lewis provides only quick overviews of programming techniques in BASIC. He says, "For a complete tutorial on programming in BASIC, consult an appropriate textbook."
