The most important thing about the Internet for Dummies Quick Reference, 5th edition, is its amazing plastic ring binding. At last, an Internet reference that'll lay flat on your desk. Other books about the Internet have plenty of useful info, but you have to learn to type with one hand while holding them open with the other. This can seriously increase your stress level and has actually been shown to increase bad cholesterol levels in laboratory rats by 20 points.
Ok, our content is pretty good too. We've crammed a lot of up-to-date information into 210 pages. We try to explain the stuff you really need to know, while leaving out the gobbledygook. We write for you, someone who wants to use and enjoy the Internet, not to become an expert in arcane computer jargon.
The material is carefully organized and well indexed and features an extensive Glossary. We do our best to write clearly and the hard-nosed editors at IDG nail us on every ambiguity. You will have to put up with our warped sense of humor, tho.
We think this is the perfect book to take along in your Road Warrior Kit along with your Internet-equipped laptop. The book is small, light and thorough, and the lay flat binding is perfect for airline tray tables. Take a few extras to give to friends and business contacts as well.
