Product Description:

A concise compendium of everything in the online world, written in jargon-free language.

From the Back Cover:

Online! The Book

"If you go online, see how much more you can gain, without the pain. Fascinating, fun, and delightfully written. The invaluable tool for everyone that makes you laugh out loud to read."
--Scott Cook, Founder and Chairman of Intuit Software

"There is only one Dvorak. He invented the idea that technology was as worth covering as news, he wrote the first gossip column on the inductry, and even has answered tech questions on call-in shows. He's the Orson Wells to Bill Gates's Kane."
--William R. Hearst III, Publisher and Venture Capitalist

"For 20 years or more, no one else has given us the same no-nonsense, in-your-face advice John C. Dvorak has. His expertise and influence among makers and consumers of software and hardware are legendary, as is the dry sardonic humor he brings to everything he writes about. If you want to know why you should go online and what to do once you get there, you can trust Dvorak's advice like you would trust your mother's--if Mom were intimately knowledgeable about computing, and if she could make you laugh while pointing out computing's foibles."
--Ron White, author How Computers Work, 10th Anniversary Edition

"Chris Pirillo is one of those original geeks, dating back to when he first brought common sense to the Help Desk. From there he's built bridges between Silicon Valley and Hollywood, landing somewhere in a conceptual San Luis Obispo--the grey area between content and technology."
--Marc Canter, Founder Macromedia

"This is the most practical and valuable book about the Internet you can get. A perfect reference for anyone who goes online."
--Victoria Recano, "Inside Edition"

"Everything you ever wanted to know about the Internet and really ought to ask. I love this book!"
--Lance Ulanoff, Executive Editor PCMAG.COM

"Pirillo is truly the Internet guru of our times. Hundreds of thousands of his 'Gnomie' followers can't be wrong. Online! is a Rosetta Stone, bringing the priceless, yet nearly costless, millennial treasure of the Internet to the masses. Online! is the first truly practical book about the Internet, exploring the depth of its power, without the typical techno-jargon. Online! will leave you asking how you ever got along without it."
--Brett Trout author of Internet Laws Affecting Your Company and Chair of the Iowa State Bar Association Technology Committee

"For hundreds of thousands of computer users, Chris Pirillo is the face of the Internet. Combining a sharp wit and the technical knowledge that comes with living computers and the Internet 24/7, Chris simplifies complex technical issues, helps computer users make informed decisions in the crowded software marketplace, and manages to entertain while still delivering the facts. By embracing technology as a way of life, this techno-geek has become the net's most trusted voice."
--Ken White, CEO, NextUp.com

"Chris Pirillo is at the center of the digital universe."
--Robert Scoble, Technical Evangelist, Microsoft Corporation
