The perfect gift for yourself or someone you know who wants to learn the Internet. Making sense of email, newsgroups, mailing lists, chat, the Web and
everything else the Internet has to offer is no picnic for a beginner. The simple truth is that when
many beginners are faced with all these tools they start to have second thoughts about making the
plunge into cyberspace. Perhaps they think, they are not smart enough or they don't have what it
takes to get on-line and use the Internet but nothing could be further from the truth. Every year
millions of newcomers learn how to use the Internet and they do it using a guide like Learn the
Internet In A Weekend.
Before you buy a book, you probably want to know if the "expert" has any inkling of what he is
talking about. I invite you to check out some of my web sites.
My Internet Job Center is a highly regarded resource for job seekers
and has helped tens of thousands of people find jobs over the course of many years. My daily
newspaper Internet Daily News has attracted millions of readers over
the course of its short life. As I no longer have time to publish the newspaper on a daily basis,
you will find an archive and demo for some of the stuff I've done on the Web. My latest endeavor
is the International Anti-Spam Headquarters which I created to
deter unsolicited commercial email that makes false and misleading claims.
I think you will find my bio, resume and background to be very interesting. To make a long
story short and save you the trip, here's the short of it: Over the years, my advice has helped Web
publishers, programmers, and developers all over the world. To date, I've written eight
computer books, including several best-sellers. Beyond books, I am a regular columnist and
feature writer for magazines. My column in the well-respected journal Dr. Dobb's SourceBook
is called Web Database Developer. I am also a contributor to PC Magazine and you'll
sometimes find my work in the PC Tech section. Some of my work in PC Magazine includes
"Energizing Your Web Pages," in the June 10, June 24, August, and September 9, 1997 issues
My goal in creating Learn the Internet In a Weekend was to give you a quick and easy guide to
everything you need to know to get the most out of the Internet. I truly hope you find this book to
be the best resource book you've ever bought.
