My son decided it was time for me to learn about my computer and stop bugging him all the time. He suggested I get one of the dummie's books and he was right. I felt it was exactly the explanation and had exactly the information I needed to understand what I am doing on the computer every day.

The Dummies series is usually very helpful, and this book is not an exception. I'm pretty good at getting around the internet, but Internet for Dummies gave me new methods and ways to be safe and to do good searches. Even if you find just a couple of new ideas, the book is worth buying.

This book was very helpful for someone who just got their first computer and had never, ever been on the internet before. Now they are surfing like a pro.

This book is excellent! [as are most of the "Dummies" series] It has saved my head more times than I can count... great for references on the computer i.e. "pop-up blocker", etc... Great review of text and terminology... also, easy to find what you need.

I qualify to read Internet for Dummies. If I didn't know better I'd think the book was written specifically for me. Easy reading and equally easy to look up specifics questions. I highly recommend it

This was a used book. It was in excellent condition and didn't look as it had ever been used. It was also very reasonably priced and shipped expediently. I was extremely pleased with the purchase and will definitely consider buying used books in the future.

I bought it for my mom cause I was losing patience with all the elementary questions that come with someone not familiar with the internet. Large print and easy instructions worked for her.
