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.

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.

This is an excellent book for some one like me who is computer illiterate.
I highly recommend this for understanding and finding out how your computer and its programs work.

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.

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.
