Get the Most Out of the Net with The Whole Internet: The Next Generation

SEBASTOPOL, CA--First it was a novelty, now it's a necessity. The Internet is smack in the middle of our lives, at home and at work. Shopping, playing games, chatting, researching--ordinary folks are doing all that and more online. But the Internet doesn't stand still. New sites, tools, and services pop up every day, and all the search engines combined can only cover about 35% of information on the Web. Even email can feel more like a burden than a blessing. If you've ever wondered, "Am I the Internet's master or its slave?" turn to The Whole Internet: The Next Generation to learn how to make the Net work for you.

The Whole Internet: The Next Generation shows you the keys to Internet savvy. You'll learn how to:

  • Buy and sell on the Net--safely.

  • Get rid of most junk email, master your mailing lists, and save time by customizing your email program.

  • Play online games and cut down on delays and disconnects.

  • Protect your own privacy and the privacy of your children.

  • Navigate the sea of information available online.

  • Figure out what services are worth paying for.

  • Use the newest Internet applications: audio, video, conferencing tools, and "push" technologies.
The book also features an Internet resource catalog, spotlighting the best sites on topics from Children to Sports to Personal Finance to Philosophy, plus lists of celebrities' favorite sites.

Way back in 1992, O'Reilly's The Whole Internet User's Guide & Catalog was the bible for the first wave of Internet users. It sold more than a million copies, and was designated one of 100 Books of the Century by the New York Public Library. Its successor, The Whole Internet: The Next Generation , brings Net users into the twenty-first century.
