The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Mastering the Internet/Book and Disk':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
I suspect the authors have tried to make this book do too many things for too many people. The result is an acceptable basic Internet guide "bulked out" with sections that don't work. Part one provides a background to the Internet, and a very simplified introduction to the standard applications. An interesting feature is a chapter on setting up and configuring a modem. Unfortunately, while this provides much better information to the novice than many "big name" modem reference books, it still falls short of what the new user needs. Throughout this first section, there are odd intrusions, such as tables of ISO country codes, which may confuse the neophyte. Part two looks at the net from the viewpoint of the provider. This is, though, a philosophical and limited overview, touching more on the public school system, acceptable use policies, and sample designs, than on the practicalities of bandwidth and security. Part three lists varied Internet resources for public policy and education. A set of appendices contains essays on philosophy and culture, plus the Hobbes' Internet Timelist, a list of MUDs, and a list of ftp archive sites. The book also contains access software for Netcom, and the Chameleon SLIP software sampler. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1995
