Something funny is going on is cyberspace and bestselling humorist Dave Barry (email@example.com) is just the guy to tell readers all about it! Self-professed computer geek Barry reviews his life as a hard-drive addict with anecdotes dating back to the early 1980s when he got his first model, "which looked like a mutant toaster oven that had been exposed to atomic radiation and developed a keyboard."

Trust Dave Barry, middle-class America's chronicler of the absurdities and inanities of daily life, to provide the authoritative funnyman's guide to life with computers. Barry is sometimes insightful, as when he notes the ridiculous number of keystrokes needed to actually write something, often hilarious, as in his sendup of technological support hotlines, and occasionally genuinely indignant. This book is the perfect gift for anyone who, like many of us, can't live with computers and can't live without them.From the Publisher:
Designed especially for the geek in all of us, this is Dave Barry's take on everything from how to buy a computer to the information superhighway and how to get there -- hopefully in one piece or at least with an airbag. Anytime you feel real stupid about computers and the Internet, just pick up DAVE BARRY IN CYBERSPACE and you'll feel a whole lot better that somebody else might be in worst shape than you.
