From the Preface
The book is written for people who want to learn to use the Internet.
The explanations, examples and exercises have come from my experiences
learning how to use the Internet and from teaching others in workshops
and classes. The target audience is new or infrequent users of
the Internet. It's designed for people who have a connection to
the Internet and want to know how to use that connection
in a productive and satisfying way to access services, resources,
and information, and communicate electronically with others. Why
things work the way they do on the Internet is given some attention,
but the focus is on learning how to use the Internet in a step-by-step
manner. The book can be used by individuals learning on their
own or it can be used as a primary or supplemental text book in
courses dealing with the Internet.
