About this title

Synopsis:

Sams Teach Yourself the Internet in 10 Minutes is a tutorial-based book, organized into a series of easy-to-follow, 10-minute lessons. These well-targeted lessons teach you in 10 minutes what some books take several hours or days to teach. You'll learn how to utilize the most popular Internet services (including the World Wide Web and e-mail), find the hottest Web sites, understand multimedia on the Web, create your own Web page; join newsgroups, make long distance phone calls for free; and play games online.

Review:

The second edition of Sams Teach Yourself the Internet in 10 Minutes is informatively written and a good value for your money. The book is split into 18 10-minute "lessons," which cover the usual ground of how to establish an Internet connection, how to use a Web browser, how to send and receive e-mail, how to conduct online chats, Usenet, mailing lists, and file transfer using FTP. Some of the later lessons also talk about online shopping and the benefits and drawbacks of Web-based e-mail.

The author, Galen Grimes, has an extensive background in computers and the Internet. His coverage of the latest and greatest offering from Netscape and Microsoft show that the book is reasonably up to date. However, in places it hasn't been updated thoroughly enough, resulting in a few gremlins. For example, there haven't been anywhere near 18,000 newsgroups since about 1997.

The book successfully breaks down the key features of each application and explains how they work, with help from useful screen shots and step-by-step instructions. It also includes a comprehensive and well-structured index. This is an ideal book for any Net-newbie looking for a no-nonsense initiation to the Internet, and a guide to the ways of the Web. --Josh Smith, amazon.co.uk
