In this no-nonsense book, author Mark Kressin uses a formal, structured style to introduce newcomers to the net. The approach will be welcome by those who like their information set forth quickly, simply, and clearly in one, two, three fashion. The streamlined technique also allows the book to cover much ground in its 241 content-rich pages--everything from an overview of the whole Internet to a fine introduction to the Web to instructions on developing a Web site of ones own. Nine appendices provide information on such matters as specialized commands, security issues, and interesting sites to visit.From the Publisher:
