The book is well presented and has good illustrations for helping experienced adults gain a grasp of the internet. The exercises and tutorials gradually take you into the power of browsers with a few neat tricks. However, many of the exercises, if not all, are centred on using Microsoft Internet Explorer, which is due to be replaced when Windows 10 comes out and the majority of internet users prefer Google Chrome. This limitation also excludes those using an Apple computer or OSX, which doesn't feature Internet Explorer - unless you do some major tricks. In the book, there is a major error where it asks students to visit www.google.com/index.html that page does not exist and returns a 404 error! Most internet users will use a search engine to find the correct page, hence the book should be updated to reflect that.

I bought this for my 83 yr old dad who has just bought a laptop. He is a complete beginner and it has been helpful to him but I think he would have preferred something a wee bit simpler, saying that, he knows more than I do now! Good reference book ideal for someone who knows a little about computers.

Purchasing was great, reasonable price and arrived quickly - book itself not really helpful if you have a computer already coz basically just telling you what you can find on the internet (and we all know there is just about EVERYTHING anyway!) Would have helped prior to computer purchase maybe- could have been the encouragement needed to take the plunge!
