From the Publisher:

Since 1995 NetLingo has been "the semantics storehouse of cyberspace" and it has helped millions of people around the world learn the new lingo associated with the online world of business and communication. Featured in The New York Times, MSNBC, USA Today, Fortune Magazine, Reader's Digest, People Magazine, PC Magazine, MSNBC, and many others, NetLingo is a valuable reference guide for Web users, educators, and industry professionals.

NetLingo The Internet Dictionary is a good-looking book, sturdy and easy to flip through, affordably priced, and it covers a wide range of content that's certain to satisfy any online user.

From the Author:

One of the best things about NetLingo The Internet Dictionary is the Appendix, it contains the largest collection of Chat Acronyms in print! There are more than 1200 chat acronyms, more than 300 examples of different Smileys, as well as samples of ASCII Art, A Complete List of International Country Code Domains and File Extensions. You will also find in-depth explanations on ASPs, e-mail, cookies, ISPs, Siliconia, and tips on viruses and writing office e-mail, plus I wrote a special "Getting Up to Speed" section for newbies :-)

Unlike the "Dummies" dictionary (which is actually full of incorrect information) and unlike so many arcane computer dictionaries (written by programmers/men), NetLingo explains things "as if I'm describing it to my mother" in an accurate and easy-to-understand way. It is unique because the book works in conjunction with the Web site; there are more than 100 definitions in the book that refer readers back to NetLingo.com where they can find a direct link or download to the described product or organization – this makes it easy for newbies to learn about the online world while they're using it!

Even though I like to think that NetLingo caters to newbies, the fact is that hardcore techies love it too because it's comprehensive, up-to-date, and accurate.
