5.0 out of 5 stars Definite must-have for the Internet 'newbie'! June 26, 2004
By A Customer
If you're just starting out to use the Internet, this is a definite must-have book for you! It's written in way for all of us to understand, and leaves the techie jargon behind! This book is a definite MUST HAVE for any website designer, newbie to web design and anyone and everyone who has an online business. Simple, easy to understand visuals compliment the text, which is written in a very simplistic manner. This book is wonderful - magnificent - excellent, and will help you greatly understand the elements of successful web design. I've used it to consistently update my own website, at:
If you don't have this book, you're missing out on your single-most-important investment in your professional life!

4.0 out of 5 stars Learned February 28, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book enabled me to surf the Internet quicker. My questions were answered on topics, that I was unaware of. Very informative. A perfect read for individuals that have some previous knowledge of the Internet, yet not enough.

...and now I surf the wide world web like a hangin' ten, cowabunga yelling tide tamer. This tells you how to get from a idea to the very article you're searching for as well as defining what those dot com or dot org or dot gov slash dot htmls mean. The Dummy books are like the Cliff Notes on everything and this one fits the bill for us folks with limited acuity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Beginners August 18, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My husband is a computer/internet newcomer. He read most chapters and is using it as a reference. The book reinforced the security issues surrounding some websites and popups. Great book for folks that are unfamiliar with the web.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction! January 9, 2009
althougth many of the points included I already knew, the interesting thing of this book is that refreshed most of my basic knowledge of Internet; and also...there are many points and issues I did not know of its importance. Highly reccomended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother February 24, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Don't bother if you are a novice. Instead of simple steps this is
a wordy text and contains information that does not help you learn
the net.
