From the Author
Our goal in writing this book is to explain, not just define. We feel you have a right to know how your computer works, not just how to use it. Thus, we cover not only business software, personal computers, and the Internet, but also fundamentals such as computer architecture and binary arithmetic.
This edition adds over 200 new entries, including new coverage of Windows 2000 and substantially increased coverage of UNIX, networking, and Internet commerce, as well as a dozen new illustrations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews
As a resource for explaining most computer and internet terminology it's pretty good. As a resource for explaining digital photography or programming...well there are only so many pages.
Overall, decent value if you're looking for a handy-dandy pocket book reference.
