4.0 out of 5 stars I needed to understand some basic terminology and this greatly helped July 20 2010

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good Dummies book Feb. 15 2011
By Florence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

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
