    Dummies!

    The "...for Dummies" books are great, basic but include side bars with advanced and more technical info and humorous.

    Actually inspite of owning a bookstore I don't recommend purchasing the beginner's computer books. <big>Use your Public Library.</big> Now when you get ready to set up your own Web Page and use HTML you will probably need to purchase.

    Re: Internet introduction

    I agree. The "Internet for Dummies" book is an excellent intro for someone who needs the real basics and isn't ready to go too far into the deep end yet. I used to keep a copy on hand to use in explaining web stuff to a previous employer who believed it was all done by magic. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
