In just over two years ICQ (I Seek You) rocketed from a messaging software with just over a million registered users to a full-blown communication suite with over 50 million registered users. The power of the program now goes far beyond simple (largely self-explanatory) chat features and a user guide has become essential for anyone wanting to use its full power.
The features covered in 'Mastering ICQ : The Official Guide', include ICQ mail, free homepages, streaming radio, voice communication, and plug-ins that expand the capabilities of the program. You will learn how to find people you know via ICQ, make yourself invisible while on ICQ, and send voice, graphics, and text files via ICQ. Also how to protect yourself from ICQ hackers, use ICQ as a personal assistant, and connect your phone to ICQ.
This excellent book uncovers and teaches dozens of uses for the program that you may not have discovered on your own. The new power of ICQ ensures that IRC (Internet Relay Chat ) will remain the Wild West of real-time online conversation, and learning to use ICQ's new power requires a clear, concise guide such as this. The topics are covered in easy-to-approach order and Peter Weverka, the author, has drawn heavily on modern teaching methods (Tell them what you're going to tell them --- Tell them --- Tell them what you told them). It might sound simplistic, but it works.
I highly recommend 'Mastering ICQ : The Official Guide' to anyone who wants to make use of this free internet software. (For more details, simply type into your search bar, and you'll be taken straight to the site).

With over 90 million users of ICQ worldwide, this book will easily be the best seller in computer book history, it's a MUST have for every ICQ experienced user or even newbie user of ICQ. This author has again brought us the most complete knowledge users need today! Talk to your friends, make new friends, look up old friends, effective in daily business or using ICQ to just relax. If you have the program, buy the book today, perfect companion, the two goes hand in hand together. I'm surprised the word ICQ hasn't been added to Websters. This clearly is the best resource I've seen for ICQ. I strongly encourage every ICQ user to pick this up.
