9780132335539: The Internet Book: Everything You Need to Know About Computer Networking and How the Internet Works

For use as a primary text for courses on using the Internet, or as a supplement for computer literacy courses that cover networking or the Internet.

Fully revised and updated throughout, this text explains – in non-technical language – the technology of how computers communicate, what the Internet is, how the Internet works, and what the Internet can do for people. Students connect to the material through Comer’s solid overview that focuses on the “big picture,” rather than the minute details. No background in computer networking or the Internet is assumed.

From the Author:

Intended for beginners
When I wrote "The Internet Book" my intended audience was would be network administrators and those just beginning to get involved in network architectures in a professional sense. Essentially, these are people whose place of work assigned them the responsibility of network creation/administration because "there was no one else to do it."

I have been pleasantly surprised by how many college students have also latched on to my work as a source of basic information about the Internet and what makes it work.

To all my readers I say thank you and keep your eyes peeled for my other titles.

Sincerely, D.C.

From the Back Cover:

Douglas Comer, best-selling networking author, teacher, and consultant, provides a unique and understandable overview of not only how to use the Internet but how it works. In the Third Edition of The INTERNET Book, the author utilizes a nontechnical perspective to explain the technology of how computers communicate, what the Internet is, how the Internet works, and what the Internet can do for people. The author's practical approach offers the reader the big picture by presenting a solid overview of networking and the Internet rather than buying the reader with details. This book sows the reader the potential ways the Internet can change how we conduct our personal and professional lives. Comer assumes no prior background knowledge in computer networking or the Internet.

The INTERNET Book:

  • Provides an overview of Electronic Commerce and how the Internet can be used to conduct business and commercial transactions.
  • Includes Security and Encryption with respect to Internet commerce, why security is needed, and the technologies that provide secure communications.
  • Describes getting started with hands on experience with the concept of a Web browser and examples of Web sites to visit.
  • Updates topics throughout and adds information about current technologies such as shopping carts, cookies, personalized Web search results, Internet faxes, remote desktops, and streaming audio and video.
  • Covers Internet connection technologies: ADSL, cable modems, and wireless networks.
