concise and handy guide Oct. 27 2005
By W Boudville - Published on
Format: Paperback
Buckley gives a quick coverage of what you can do or find on the Internet. He ambitiously tries to cover every major mass usage. Browsing is shown to be very easy. Several browsers are explained, notably Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Apple's Safari. But other alternatives that get a mention are Firefox, Opera, Netscape and Mozilla.

Other popular activities in the book include email and using a search engine. Along with various ways to perform Instant Messaging and SMS. The very popular Skype (now part of eBay!) lets you have cheap long distance phone calls. Getting music from a peer-to-peer service is another common activity that you might need advice on.

The book also warns about various perils. Like scams in email, often in the form of phishing. You are also cautioned to beware of attachments in messages from strangers. The attachments might be viruses looking for a home on your machine. So regularly updating a virus checker is a good thing.

All around, a handy guide.

Review Rough Guide to Internet Aug. 30 2006
By C. F. Looker - Published on
Format: Paperback
Excellent Mac & P.C. Users Guide to Internet, that covers almost all contingences re problems one will encounter; my one criticism for new internet users is that the chief means of entry to the Guide will be through the Index of the book, and this is hopelessly inadequate as a means of locating clear page references for problems.

Everyone that is on the web should own this book. It is helpful for those just starting and experienced web users. It is easy on the budget also.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for a college class, but since it was not a required text, I chose to return it... Hopefully my money will be refunded!
