Editorial description(s):

From Library Journal
Although featuring some useful tips and tricks for newbies, Internet User's Handbook also contains some questionable assertions (e.g., that over 50 percent of all web sites contain pornography). As a brief, nonthreatening alternative, consider The Rough Guide to the Internet (Computer Media, LJ 2/1/01). Search Engines Handbook, however, will make a worthy addition to any library. Besides describing major search engines, directories, and search strategies, it explains how search engines work and provides commentary on the importance of learning from the process of rethinking failed searches. Recommended as a supplement to more comprehensive Internet searching guides.

Book Description
This fully updated and revised edition of the original work ("packed full of useful facts, hints, and advice...a wealth of information"--Against the Grain) provides current information for everyone presently using the Internet or wishing to start. Its everyday language and simplicity of presentation reduce the complexities. The handbook answers the most commonly asked questions about choosing a computer and other hardware for using the Internet, the software to accompany it, and the service providers that give access to the Internet. Searching, downloading, e-mailing, listening to music and MP3, obtaining free stuff, shopping, using credit cards online, gambling, participating in auction sites, making travel arrangements, playing games, earning rewards and points, banking and paying bills, researching hobby interests, and obtaining information from local, state, and the federal government are all fully covered.
